  • Econ 202: Selling a Practice as a Function of Interest Rates August 26, 2014
    Astute readers may have noticed Hearing Economics’ attempts to slip in Economics education on the sly. Today’s post fits right into the Economics 202 series, initiating a discussion of how interest rates affect the economy (a macro concept) and our very own practices (a micro concept).  Craig Castelli (bio below) describes the situation for […]

  • Hearing But Not Understanding August 25, 2014
    Speech Perception to Speech Recognition Hearing but not understanding is the general theme of this post.  Acoustic characteristics of speech that lead to “hearing” have been the subject of the last two posts.
