    Because they can't openly give out Nobel prize for comedy, so they do it indirectly.

    Fama and Larsen are actually pretty funny, and they make jokes about their own models in class all the time.

    Interesting article and well written.

    When I use the term "laissez-faire economy," I am talking about the literal interpretation of that French term, whereby, the government leaves businesses alone (with minimal interference). We live in times where the national currency is controlled by a non-government entity (The Federal Reserve), where periodic and iterative inflationary measures are the only ways to keep moving the economy forward, where the government has to make complicated laws to tax, cess, and levy, from all possible sources, making life difficult for both the producer and the consumer. It's about time the government left the people alone.
