Question of the day

You are a chair-holding professor of economics at Harvard. You have a new (January 2008) book out. The book cover has five blurbs. Is it a good thing or a bad thing that one of those five blurbs is by Bianca Jagger?

Well, she was married to someone who majored in economics, so she has some experience with economics.

It seems to me I read somewhere that she's very intelligent. If so, she hides it well.

But, if you're old enough, remember Hedy Lamarr. And, going back even further, I think Greta Garbo was supposed to be quite intelligent.

Acad Ronin

It all helps in the decision on whether or not to buy the book, especially when it is the lead blurb.

And there you have the "Morality of Capitalism" professor not addressing our unprecedented financial crisis.

How about posting something about what matters, Dr. Newmark? Although like the rest of your fundy breed, I imagine you'll keep your head down until you can pontificate again when the smoke clears.

"fundy breed" as in fundamental economics" or is it Fundamentalist religion? (I never heard of fundamentalist Jews before but I guess there is always a first time).

Maybe what you meant was fundamentally correct!

Stupid, cowardly, drive by ass.

"unprecedented financial crisis" Hmmmm. No particular knowledge of history, evidently. No real argument, just an unjustified sense of entitlement in ordering the blog-owner's work. Quick attempt at a slur. Yep. A real, live idiot Lefty (but I repeat myself) would be econ troll. Not as rare as I'd like and not nearly good enough to take as a trophy. Pity.
