Paging Peter Boettke


There is now absolutely no reason you would want to call yourself an "economist." WSJ reports:

Maryland police said Monday they were seeking a former International Monetary Fund economist suspected of attempting to murder his onetime boss...

Mohau Mercy Mathibe, a 36-year-old South African who remains at large, worked from October 2005 to January 2008 in the IMF's "economist program"...On Oct. 8, Mr. Mody was shot through the jaw after parking his car in the garage of his home in Bethesda, Md.

How can you possibly be associated with such types?

This is going to be all across Google alerts for the words, "economist", "economics" and "economist program".


  1. That's hilarious...
