A Flattering Passage into the Mankiw Echo Chamber

N. Gregory Mankiw, former chief economics adviser to President Bush, evidently took the time to type (or at least copy-paste) the phrase "Freakwenter concurs" and link it to an old post on this blog. I still concur.

UPDATE: I never noticed an increase in traffic due to the link. I think this is partially due to Mankiw's posting the link as an update, possibly several days after the original post. Even if he had included the link in his original post, it would have been worth surprisingly little in terms of traffic, as I noted in a previous post.

If G. Mankiw knew about your birthday cake I baked today in the blistering heat, he'd want some. He'd want an economy-size piece.
