Fun Economics – An Ode to Silliness

”People who take themselves too seriously are a danger to themselves” a not so unknown economist said recently. This statement being probably one of the smartest things he said (without having a preconceived opinion about him or knowing any of his academic work in greater detail) and definitively something I can relate to.

On that note I want to gather posts, ideas and statements to collect the irony, humor and silliness there is in economics.

The first thing that comes to mind are certainly the 21 Reasons Why You Should Never Date an Economist.
