Focus on the Center

The newsletter of the Center for Ethics and Public Affairs from 2003-2008



The Murphy Institute organizes and sponsors a variety of events during the course of a typical academic year. We record our events so community members around the world can view the lectures.

Fall 2023 Yates Lecture: Kai Ryssdal


The Fall 2023 Yates Lecture featured Kai Ryssdal, the senior editor and host of American Public Media’s Marketplace, a nationally syndicated radio program dedicated to business and the economy that reaches over 11 million listeners each week on over 800 public radio stations. Mr. Ryssdal is also the co-host of the podcast Make Me Smart.




The books in the Studies In Political Economy series are occasional volumes sponsored by the Murphy Institute and Cambridge University Press, comprising original essays by leading scholars in the United States and other countries. Each volume considers one of the intellectual preoccupations or analytical procedures currently associated with the term “political economy.”

The goal of the series is to aid scholars and teachers committed to moving beyond the traditional boundaries of their disciplines in a common search for new insights and new ways of studying the political and economic realities of our time. The series is published with the support of the Tulane-Murphy Foundation.
