Random Link: Where Economics And Superheroes Collide…

No, I wasn’t putting on my Wonder Woman costume again…instead, while I am toiling away at some new videos and such, I figured I would give you something new to play with. Check out Ecocomics (subtitle: Where Graphic Art Meets Dismal Science) for some on-point analysis of the economic concepts to be found in comic books. The site is run by two rather mysterious individuals (or at least they seem so to me since they won’t tell me their real names) who, as far as I can tell, work in finance and need an outlet for their inner nerds.

The site is entertaining in general, but it’s also potentially useful for those of you out there who are economics educators looking for ways to get your tired/ADD-ridden/hungover students interested in the material. 🙂 You will notice that I’ve also listed it under “Links to EDIWM” on the left sidebar, and it’s been in the Econ Around the Web rotation for a while. The “Some Notable Posts” area is a good place to start if you are new to the site, and a couple of my favorite articles are:

Should Batman Villains Betray Each Other? (Analysis using the Prisoner’s Dilemma)

Alien Technology and Economic Growth: Lessons from Solow

Just remember kids, knowing is half the battle…and, according to Homer Simpson, Batman is a scientist. Ok, I am done with my bad comic-ish references now.
