  • I’ve gone Hollywood!

    I’m the “celebrity economist” in a series of videos for the newly redesigned Ford Transit Connect, a nifty van that’s customizable, maneuverable, fuel-efficient, and could be just right for your small business :) In addition to this “Petting Zoo” video, there’s “Tomatoes”, “Surf Shop”, “Salvage Recycle”, and “Roadside Rescue”, and FYI see also this ad starring Nobel laureate Thomas Sargent!

  • 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”.
