What else can this guy do?
Congrats on winning the Nobel for economics.
So he teaches at Princeton, has a regular column in the NY Times where he gets to excoriate deserving Republicans all the time and now has a Nobel. And the guy is only 55 years old. Today he admitted regret, in an interview with NPR, that he couldn’t foresee the extent of the current economic crisis. I guess that makes me feel a little better…if he couldn’t predict it, it’s safe to say that few could have predicted the depth of this crisis.
I think Martin Chalfie who won this year’s Nobel for Chemistry (along with two others), may also be Jewish – Chalfie is a Sephardic name, to my knowledge – but I haven’t seen any corroborating evidence, so we’ll thank him on behalf of all of humanity and if he turns out that he’s a MOT, we’ll add a mazal tov and get somebody to drink some schnapps in commemoration (not me, I don’t drink “schnapps”).
