Now that I’ve learned that there are some RBC readers who do not love economists (I am married to one), I thought I would offer two funny items to lighten the mood. Here is an article highlighting the thoughts of Jonathan Haidt . We ran track together at Scarsdale High School in the early 1980s. Few Scarsdale grads chose to become professors. Instead, they became lawyers or went to Wall Street. Jonathan argues that conservatives are under-represented in his field. Why? The second item I want to share is Kittey Kelley’s biography of Oprah Winfrey. I read it on the plane ride the other day and found it to be fascinating. I like ambition, gossip and success.
