Economist Humor

The Standup Economist, Yoram Bauman, just presented a humorous take on Gregory Mankiw‘s Ten Principles of Economics. Mankiw is a professor at Harvard. His textbooks on economics are apparently widely used. Bauman presented this take to the American Association for the Advancement of Science meeting. In addition it seems Mankiw either liked the take or wanted the publicity enough that he posted the video to his blog. Enjoy the silliness on a Sunday.

  1. It really picks up about 4 minutes in. Nice satire of the tautological shibboleths that often pass for “foundational principles” in econoblogging.
