In 'WTF?! An Economic Tour of the Weird', Peter Leeson shows that far from "irrational" or "accidents of history," humanity's most outlandish rituals are ingenious solutions to pressing problems--developed by clever people, driven by incentives, and tailor-made for their time and place. On April 26, 2018, the Hayek Program hosted a book panel featuring author Peter Leeson and scholars Boris Gershman and Steven Pfaff to discuss the theories and implications of Leeson's new book.
