    Well it all depends…

    Like where does ms Zeta-Jones stand on methodology?

    Would she do better than Selma Hayek in a head to head with Fritz Hayek?

    OK Now the film has loaded and the plot is more clear. You are talking about a sales pitch, not just hanging out and chewing the fat.

    I was going to ask for a picture of the economists who you had in mind so we could compare all parties by the same criteria.

    Rafe, I find nothing strange at all about Google’s algorithms. This one seems about right to me.
