The fiscal deal brings the Mankiw family closer

Posted in Cheeky Economists by Navin Kumar on January 4, 2013

Many of the world’s professional economists are spending the next few days in San Diego for the annual ASSA meeting, where economists network, get some publicity for themselves, and learn what other economists are up to. I am skipping this year’s meeting to spend more time with family.  You might think that is lazy of me.  But heck, my marginal tax rate just went up.  A bit of extra laziness is optimal.
