Help me with my new routine!
Inspired by FMR, I’ve got a new routine called “When life gives you lemons…” and I need your help! The idea is to use this phrase to explain economic ideas, e.g., comparing an MBA (“When life gives you lemons, go corner the market for lemons”) with econ grad school (“When life gives you lemons, go read “The Market for Lemons”). Excellent entries will win signed copies of my Cartoon Economics books!
“Hyperinflation in Hell”
Check out my latest video, which came almost a full year earlier than the Wall Street Journal‘s Aug 20 2013 article, “In Hong Kong, Inflation Worries Spook the Spirit World”. (My video was filmed at the Humor Session at the Jan 2013 annual meeting of the American Economic Association.) All together my videos have over 1 million hits on YouTube.
