Economists´ Jokes

November 10, 2006
Yesterday, a good friend send me some jokes about economists´ and I wanted to share them for a good laugh... Have a nice weekend =)

An economist is someone who gets rich explaining others why they are poor.

An economist is someone who knows 100 ways to make love, but doesn't know any women/men.

A central banker walks into a pizzeria to order a pizza. When the pizza is done, he goes up to the counter get it. There a clerk asks him: "Should I cut it into six pieces or eight pieces?" The central banker replies: "I'm feeling rather hungry right now. You'd better cut it into eight pieces."

An economist, a philosopher, a biologist, and an architect were were arguing about what was God's real profession. The philosopher said, "Well, first and foremost, God is a philosopher because he created the principles by which man is to live." "Ridiculous!" said the biologist "Before that, God created man and woman and all living things so clearly he was a biologist." "Wrong," said the architect. "Before that, he created the heavens and the earth. Before the earth, there was only complete confusion and chaos!" "Well," said the economist, "where do you think the chaos came from?"

An economist is an expert who will know tomorrow why the things he predicted yesterday didn't happen today. - Laurence J. Peter

Economic statistics are like a bikini, what they reveal is important, what they conceal is vital" - Attributed to Professor Sir Frank Holmes, Victoria University, Wellington, New Zealand, 1967.

Phelson's Law (or so I was told) Copying an idea from an author is plagiarism. Copying many ideas from many authors is... research!!
