Humor Session

Going to the AEA meetings this year? I am not, but if you are, here is a tip from my friend Yoram Bauman (the standup economist who does the great parody of my favorite textbook's ten principles):
The (first-ever!) American Economic Association humor session will take place Saturday Jan 3rd from 8-9 pm in the Hilton San Francisco (333 O'Farrell Street), rooms Golden Gate 1 and 2. The event is free and open to the public; Preston McAfee (CalTech) will be presiding, with speakers including Peter Orazem (Iowa State), Rob Oxoby (Univ of Calgary), and Yoram Bauman. There will also be an award for the funniest paper of 2008.
