Pick-up Lines for Economists

1. A loaf of bread, a jug of wine and thou beside me watching Rukeyser
2. You stoke the animal spirits of my market
3. Let's assume a ritzy hotel room and a bottle of Dom
4. Tell me whether my expectations are rational
5. Further stimulus could result in uncontrolled expansion
6. Let's raise housing starts together
7. You bring the butter, I'll bring the gun
8. What do you say we remeasure our cross-elasticity
9. Despite a decade of inflation, I still dig your supply curve
10. You raise my interest rate thirty basis points without a corresponding dropoff in consumer enthusiasm

If debaters do it "orally in public in groups"...

- Economists do it in an Edgeworth Box
- Economists do it on demand
- Economists do it risk-free
- Economists do it with a dual
- Economists do it with crystal balls
- Economists do it with interest
- Economists do it with models
- Economists do it on Leontief's table
- Economists do it with Slutsky matrices

a lingustics professors explains to his class how using two negatives in one idea actually makes it positive, but the same cannot hold vice versa (ie, two positives meaning a negative)

then the student goes "yeah, right"
