Economic analyst Hank Fishkind has become a zombie hunter.

That’s right, zombies.

There’s a new book out called Arguing with Zombies by Nobel Prize-winning economist Paul Krugman. He defines zombies as long-debunked economic theories that somehow still inform public policy.

This week, Fishkind tells 90.7’s Nicole Darden Creston what he found when he went hunting for these zombies in Florida.

Nicole came to Central Florida to attend Rollins College and started working for Orlando’s ABC News Radio affiliate shortly after graduation. She joined Central Florida Public Media in 2010. As a field reporter, news anchor and radio show host in the City Beautiful, she has covered everything from local arts to national elections, from extraordinary hurricanes to historic space flights, from the people and procedures of Florida’s justice system to the changing face of the state’s economy.
