Economic themes in *Girls*, the new HBO show

The comic timing is very good, and the show also explains:

1. Why the “Rotten Kid theorem” fails and why theories of strategic bequest are unlikely to work,

2. The longer-term consequences of a slow job market for youth, and

3. What life is like when your IQ is high but the shadow value of your labor is low.

The first episode is now on YouTube.
