Affleck Versus Greenspan

This Employment Policy Institute essay by Craig Garthwaite on minimum wage increases struck me as hilarious. Or maybe it is not the essay itself — worth a read in any case for those interested in the impact of mandatiory minimum wage increases — but the very notion of Ben Affleck debating economics with Alan Greenspan. What a mental picture!

Thanks to for the pointer.
