The Economist Who Didn't Bark
By David Henderson
Actually, economists plural.
One of my favorite Sherlock Holmes stories is “Silver Blaze” because Holmes used as evidence the fact that a dog didn’t bark.

Over 100 of her colleagues signed a letter supporting her. Glass half empty so far, right?
But take a look at the letter and the various departments represented by the signers. What department do you notice is absent?
