rock stars who secretly want to be economists.

Like Bono?

As to the latter, if the extra money nicked off the tourists goes to Madonna, I will believe that the closed bar Megan McArdle featured recently is still open. What the optimum split of such money between bar staff and manger should be beats me.

Just think how much higher world welfare could have been if Mick Jagger had completed his degree at the London School of Economics.

His professors thought he had great potential as an economist.

Perhaps Greg Mankiw could have studied under him.

For those interested in economists as rock star... The Contractions.
