A Fun New Search Tool

Google's Ngram Viewer has been around for a while, but I just learned about it, so I thought I would mention it to my blog readers.  This new search tool allows you to track and compare how often words or phrases appear in published books (at least those books in Google's database, which I gather is quite large).  For example, here you can see how often Irving Fisher and John Maynard Keynes are mentioned, and here you can you see how several words associated with my career have risen over time.
