From Hit&Run:

You know you’re a serious libertarian wonk if you laugh at the old joke about two Chicago School economists who spot a $10 bill on the sidewalk: One bends to pick it up, and the other warns: “Wait, don’t bother—if it were really there, someone would’ve grabbed it already.”

Needless to say, I laughed out loud.

  1. *laugh* That is funny. But I don’t view that as libertarian so much as cynical.

  2. We were with the financial consultant

    …and the topic of making lots of money in the .com era came up.
    I wondered aloud “If your financial tree falls in the forest, and you’re too broke to hear it, did the money really exist?”
    Got a chuckle for that.
