You Know You're an Economist When . . .
By David Henderson
It was an obvious evolutionary step. As pasteurization, refrigeration, and an efficient network of rail lines developed, so did national brewing companies.
This is from Daniel Okrent, Last Call: The Rise and Fall of Prohibition, which I blogged about last week. It’s the first book I’ve been reading on my two-week vacation at my cottage in Minaki, Ontario.
When I read that line, I got a warm fuzzy feeling. It’s not because I particularly like beer. I don’t. It’s because I love seeing good economic analysis.
It occurred to me to start a game, kind of like the game “You know you’re a redneck when . . .”
You know you’re an economist when . . .
If you care to play, complete the sentence in the comments.
I don’t have the internet at my cottage and so I might not check in for a day or two. But I will read them.
