Economic Comics

Ev'ry year, in the opening week,
At the conférence économique,
Next to earnest debates
At off-season rates,
There's some divertissment très comique.

The imaginary Dr. Goose will share the stage with some real - and really funny - PhD's during this weekend's annual meeting of the American Economic Association in Denver.  The AEA's humor session is 8:00 PM MST on Saturday, January 8 and includes the lineup below.  It's free and open to the public, so please come see us if you are in Denver.  If you are not, you can see the live webcast, courtesy of Harvard's Jodi Beggs, a.k.a. "Econgirl."
