Daron's Twin

I have a theory: Daron Acemoglu has a secret identical twin. No single person, even as brilliant as Daron, can possibly be as productive as Daron appears to be.

The latest evidence for my theory: Daron's new book Introduction to Modern Economic Growth. It is a scant 1,169 pages, and from what I have read of it, it looks fantastic. The text will become the new standard for the next generation of growth economists.

But now that a draft of the book is complete, I think it is time for Daron to let his secret twin out of the attic.
