....let's talk about me!
Over at MR, folks are peppering LeBron with requests for posts.
One request that really struck me was, "What’s the most important economics question you ever asked?"
At a facile level, it's, "why are some nations so rich and others so poor?", but I can't claim any originality there as it was asked many, many times before I got there. I'm guessing the commenter meant an original question.
The next contender would be, "why do macroeconomists ignore politics?". Here I was a little less un-original, but several others were before me.
I guess the closest thing to an original economics question I've asked is, "if we want to study growth, why are we throwing away information by using cross-sectional averages instead of panels?"
p.s. if you have requests for posts from Mungo or me, please put them in the comments and we'll see what we can do. At least here, your odds of getting chosen are much much higher!
