Aiding and abetting her include such luminaries as John Stuart Mill, George Bernard, Shaw, Mad Magazine, Steven Leacock, Emily Dickinson, Rube Goldberg, Pogo, and John Kenneth Galbraith. As no other, this book will challenge economists to enjoy jokes at their own expense- noneconomists may have even less difficulty finding something funny in this most dismal of sciences.
