I’ve told people over the years that Mick Jagger, who was a finance and accounting student at the London School of Economics, stated that his favorite economist was Friedrich Hayek. Unfortunately, I didn’t remember where I had heard or read that and couldn’t find it on line.

But a person named David Lindbergh sent me a link to an episode of Saturday Night Live from February 6, 1993 in which he makes a comment about Hayek that would lead one to believe that his favorite economist is indeed Hayek.

The episode is here and he makes the statement about Hayek at about the 3:30 point.

Update: I originally stated that Mick Jagger was an economics major. Mark Brady, in the comments below, corrected me and I have edited the post accordingly.
