Tongue in cheek


Here’s a letter to the editor from the latest edition of The Economist:

SIR – Thank you for letting us know that Hillary Clinton was “decked out in an orange trouser-suit” during a recent conference (Lexington, June 17th). I am using this information in conjunction with economic policy I have gleaned from various fashion magazines to make up my mind about her candidacy. Perhaps in the future you could report if Al Gore’s tie matched his trousers and if george Bush wore shorts on a hot day.

Also, if you’re interested in this kind of thing, there’s a great article about economic models, which (joy) doesn’t require a paid subscription to be read online. Happy reading, nerd.
