|Subject:||Extremely Funny Economics Paper|
The Theory of Interstellar Trade, by Paul Krugman, back when he was a young Assistant Professor. Samples...
From the abstract: "A solution is derived from economic theory, and two useless but true theorems are proved."
From the introductory segment: "It should be noted that, while the subject of this paper is silly, the analysis actually does make sense. This paper, then, is a serious analysis of a ridiculous subject, which is of course the opposite of what is usual in economics."
And it gets better from there.
