Now that football season is winding down, for those looking for a little excitement in their fantasy world, as is so often the case economists come to the rescue. The folks over at Research Papers in Economics (RePEc as they’re known by the cool kids) introduce a fantasy league of economists. Seems you get to pick your economists and manage economics departments, competing against other
nerds players for stuff like how many papers your team gets published, citations and bibliographic data.
Fantasy football move over. The economists have entered the market.
