Self-Promotion #392: The Sexiest Trade Alive

(Probably #393, but who's counting)

From the Newsweek :

"Economics, perhaps the geekiest of geek subjects, got a serious makeover this year...What sparked the trend? It's a mystery—even to the number crunchers. "We'd like to say it's because economics is so interesting and because economists are so handsome and intelligent," says John Siegfried, an econ professor at Vanderbilt University..."

Amen to that, Mr. Siegfried! Wait. Did someone just call us geeks? Oh, well.

  1. What a nice quotation bang Ujang!!! as the one who have been learning economics, I don't mind at all with that quotation...IMHO, because (if my English translation is correct), the geekiest of geek is refers to economics not to the economist who was pointed out as so handsome and intelligent (four of you and may be i'm in too) :-).

    Only my two cents.
