Yoram Bauman has a Ph.D. in economics, but is best known as the “stand-up economist.” Bauman’s excellent post this week, Top 11 Funniest Papers in the History of Economics, adapted from New Developments in Economics Education, reminded me (yet again) of his terrific video riffing on Greg Mankiw‘s famous (and expensive!) textbook, Principles of Economics. I’ve seen it a bunch of times and laugh out loud every time…a lot. Enjoy.
A rap version of Mankiw’s text is available here. An animated version is below.
