It's time for another installment of our infamous Self-PromotionTM postings. Let me shamelessly quote two full paragraphs from a blog entry by Steven Levitt at Freakonomics:
You may remember Joey Cheek as a gold medal speed skater from the Winter Olympics. It turns out he is also quite smart. He was admitted to Yale, Princeton, and Stanford. (Harvard, however, turned him down.)Joey, Joey. You just can't keep a secret, can you? Here's the website of Mr. Chick Magnet himself for you ladies.
Parade magazine quotes Cheek as saying that he plans to study economics. And then he goes on to blow the secret we economists have so carefully guarded for all these years. He plans to study economics because “that’s what gets the chicks.”
That, ladies and gentlemen, is Self-Promotion #393. (Or is it self-vilification?)
