As Martin Lousteau, Argentina’s youngest-ever finance minister, told one audience: “It’s a very bad thing when economists start to be interesting.”
That was said at the recent Irish four-day comedy and economics festival, namely Kilkenomics. Here are other reports from the festival. One bit:
"Ireland needs a new credit rating agency. Moody & Poor," says Colm O'Regan, an IT consultant turned comedian.
The economics festival features more than 20 events, with sessions including “The Best Way to Rob a Bank is to Own It,” and “What the Hell Just Happened.”
Here are some YouTube videos from the festival; I have not culled through them.
