The Tupac of economics bloggers

"Recreational drugs certainly seem to evoke creativity; Freud was likely high as a weather balloon when he first used the term subconscious. If Robin Hanson is a typical post-parental economist, I’d think that children probably have a similar creative effect, as Wolfers suggests. RH churns out for innovative theory on this blog than most economics departments produce in total. He’s like the Tupac of economics bloggers, to the extent that I’d expect new ideas to keep popping out long after he’s been cryonically frozen."
