Seriously though, I do think a lot about how we could make economics more visually interesting than repeated supply and demand diagrams, but it’s hard…for example, I tried to implement a “CSI: Regression Analysis” parody (as proposed by Charles Wheelan in Naked Statistics)- the script was pretty straightforward, but when I got people together to act it out we were like “heh, maybe add some sort of white board and write random stuff on it I guess?” I know, you’ve never thought of that before.

The end product wasn’t terrible, but visual suggestions are certainly welcome. Unless the suggestion is “tables of regression coefficients,” then just GFY.
