Welcome to EconRoots. A podcast on the history of Economic Thought brought to you by CEPOS and your host Stefan Sløk-Madsen. As a bonus to our regular seasons we aim to bring you exciting interviews with relevant and stimulating economists and scholars within or related to the field of economics. We call these, Econ Roots talk. 

In today’s talk recorded at the APEE conference 2022 in Las Vegas, we are honored to be joined by Dr. Siri A. Terjesen who is Associate Dean and Phil Smith Professor of Entrepreneurship at Florida Atlantic University, and Professor at the Norwegian School of Economics in Bergen, Norway. Dr. Terjesen is a nationally recognized expert within several fields, and e very gifted teacher. In todays talk we ask her what, if anything, the history of economic thought and the economic classics can teach business school students? We also take this much treasured opportunity to talk about gender diversity in boardrooms – a topic Dr. Terjesen knows intimately well and has published important research on. Full disclosure, Dr. Terjesen served on Stefans Phd committee, and was a hard but fair evaluator.
