I can't believe it took me a month to come across this gem.

Here is the link.

Tax Shelter said...

although it was meant to be funny, it actually is the truth with regard to the field of economics in academia. it's a shame.

I punched up that guy's website to see what he was all about.

Unfortunately, it seems that he was just trying to be funny. In other words, he wasn't seriously debunking the subject that he's received a PhD in.

Apparently all he's serious about is "renewable energy" - which I personally find hilarious.

Too often comedy is a veil for vacuity: Letterman, Leno, Colbert, Jon Stewart, etc.

Though, I doubt Mankiw thinks it's funny.

I was disappointed to see this guy is just another creepy socialist from Washington. Seemed promising from the video, but no...

Mankiw did link to the video in one of his posts. Trying the ol' "good humor" routine while he secretly steams about his poor ego to his wife.

You should check out my latest post on bank regulation at DoF... I spent a little time mentioning some of the idiotically contradicting things econo-demics are teaching in the classroom.
