Market Madness

File this under: Ideas I wish I had come up with.

Allen Sanderson, a sports economist from University of Chicago, has turned the blaming of different forces for the economy’s collapse into a bracket game reminiscent of March Madness. Regions include DC, Main Street and Eggheads with teams such as Moral Hazard, Bailouts and Foreclosures. There are full team explanations and Professor Sanderson has even posted his own bracket (in a tight final Foreclosures beats out Moral Hazards). All very clever.
