Street Economist

My cousin Owen is a street economist. In other words, he’s an economist–but instead of working in an office, he works on the street with all the other street performers. You walk down the promenade, and there’s one guy who dances like Michael Jackson, and there’s another guy who juggles, and then there’s my cousin Owen analyzing economic data. And then you tip him a dollar or two. Most people don’t. The typical street economist makes $273 a year. As for economists who work in buildings, they make $91,860 a year.
