Using Austin Powers to Explain Why the Business Community Should Support the Wolf Budget

Left to my own devices, I would make more frequent references to Monty Python and cricket (the sport not the insect) in my op-eds, blogs, and other writings.

Fortunately, the younger members of the KRC staff keep me mostly under control.

In a recent op-ed on the Wolf budget, however, I did get away with a reference to Austin Powers, which isn't quite as old as Monty Python, and which involves Americans (OK, a Canadian) making fun of the British.

OK, So It's Not the Swimsuit Issue...But Mark Price Made SI (Sports Illustrated)

This may be a first for an economist. A map based on a report by our very own Mark Price -- the Increasingly Unequal States of America -- made the Sports Illustrated blog at the end of last week. Fortunately, it was not accompanied by a picture of Mark on the beach during his recent work-related trips (yes, plural) to Miami.
