*Winter’s Bone*

It's the best movie we're likely to get this year.  It also has plenty of social science, including "the costs of cooperation," and zero marginal product labor.

You have seen toy story 3, haven’t you?

It’s a fine movie. It was filmed in Missouri and received the benefit of Missouri’s 35% tax credit program, as did “Up in the Air.” I’ve discussed some aspects of it on my blog, Ozarks Law & Economy.

The book is really good. Quick read.

Tyler, Tyler, Tyler. Don’t tell us that you watch movies with economics in mind. Enjoy, dear doctor.

I wonder, *why* was Winter’s Bone so good. What circumstances must come together to produce a surprise Oscar nominee? Or is it all just random?
