An Economics Joke

February 5, 2010

A surprising number of people search the internet blogs for economics jokes. Here is a good one from Stanford’s Caroline Hoxby.

An economist, a sociologist and a psychologist are golfing together. And they are golfing behind a guy who is blind. And he’s going [slow]. And the psychologist said, you know, I really am trying to understand what must be going through this man’s mind. And the sociologist says, oh, but, you know, think about the interesting social interactions that he’s having with other people on the golf course. And the economist says, this is so inefficient. He should be playing at night.

Funny, because it’s true.
