You down with GDP? Yeah you know me!

George Mason University economics professor Russ Roberts gets a lot of airtime; he appears sporadically as an expert on a variety of NPR shows – Marketplace on the air as well as the excellent Planet Money podcast. He also hosts his own podcast, Econtalk, which is more of a commitment with its usual hour+ running times.

Now you can add rap producer to the list of media achievements. Howard who? Roberts is on his way to being the new king of all media, it seems.

WBUR and All Things Considered have a story on how the rap came about, but it’s nowhere near as much fun as the rap itself. Pretty well done, though I’d be interested to hear from any of you who aren’t already familiar with the two economic schools of thought about whether it really taught you anything.

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.
