What I am Reading

Sports, Jobs, and Taxes: The Economic Impact of Sports Teams and Stadiums

You guessed it. All those arguments about tourism and economic booms to follow stadium construction are bunk. This book is an ok read; worth the skim if nothing else.

How to be Human

You will be hard pressed to find an economist who writes better than Aunt Deirdre. She does a very nice job of identifying key figures in the field, as well as the major pros and cons of the discipline. I would highly recommend it for incoming PhD students.
