The Rogue Economist, indeed
I guess you need to sock away a little cash to make sure the trip to Stockholm to pick up your Nobel goes swell: I just had a very nice correspondence with the agent of Steven Levitt (of the University of Chicago and Freakonomics fame) about his speaker's fee: forty grand! Hell, we could get Matt Lauer for less than that, with money left over to supply him with a Whitman's Sampler of oompahloompah whores to satisfy his every metrosexual whim.
Oh well, it would have been fun.
Anyhoo, Freakonomics was still a great read, and I've gone on to read a half a dozen or so of the underlying articles and it's neat and whacky stuff.Posted by Steve at November 3, 2005 08:42 PM | TrackBack
