Accredited Income Property Investment Specialist (AIPIS)

Today’s guest, Alvin E. Roth, has written a book about markets. If you are wondering what type of market - as Mr. Roth tells us himself - it’s not important what type of market. It’s the market itself. He guides us through the interview discussing chapters of his book, Who Gets What – and Why, with real life examples of the organ donation market and the online matchmaking market. He even shares his thoughts on how realtors have survived in our internet-based, do-it-yourself economy.
