The CIA Spies Among Us

I have hinted a number of times here at EPJ that I suspect a top-level occasionally libertarian-leaning economist might be doing undercover work for the CIA.

I recently had a conversation with a member of his team and I brought up the idea. His odd denial makes me even more suspicious.

Now, I think that not only is the top-level economist doing CIA undercover work but so are other members of his team.



  1. Whether it's due to common interests, shared membership in an old boys' network, or whatever, high-level academics doing stuff for the CIA has been a thing for a very long time. For a case study that is also a very fun read, see the later chapters of John McPhee's "The Ransom of Russian Art" (1994).
