SP2 has added a new partnership to Penn’s ever increasing list of cross-disciplinary collaborations. The School of Social Policy & Practice, in cooperation with Spotify, has launched a pilot podcast called Just Economics, which explores how policies and labor markets work, including the science behind job creation and unemployment insurance. The podcast is hosted by SP2 associate professor of public policy and economist Ioana Marinescu and features a discussion with her colleague Katherina “Kat” Rosqueta, the founding executive director of Penn’s Center for High Impact Philanthropy (CHIP) and adjunct faculty member. In each episode, Marinescu and Rosqueta explore the implications of a guest scholar’s research. Marinescu focuses on policy implications and Rosqueta provides input on the implications for philanthropy. Their hope is to provide evidence that empowers the listener to create a more just world.
