My Brain Is This Big

Have economists answers to the financial crisis? – Times Online

I am in the top 5% of academic economists anywhere out of 19,000, and I am about seventh in Ireland. Philip Lane or Karl Whelan would be in the top 2% in the world.

In terms of knowing things about economics, I am in the top 50% of people living on this planet. Swivel on that.
