A famous economist is trying to capture terrorists by combing through data on banking records. Wimpy. Wimpy. Wimpy. A real rogue economist would go after them with his bare hands. Grrrrr! 🙂
Today, I am in Baltimore, one of the roughest cities in the United States. Not content to study bounty hunters from the safe confines of my desk I am going hunting with the real thing. Is this my dangerous summer? Nah, that is next summer!
I am really going to Baltimore to learn. Tyler writes on development and globalization and spends a lot of time traveling and living in poor countries. It’s a good model to emulate. Blackboard economics can only get you so far. I am working on a book about bounty hunting but also about bounties and prizes more generally. I figure one less equation and one more story about Doc Rock and the Fugitive will double my sales.
