Harvard economics professor Ed. Glaeser is featured in this NYT piece.
The best part of the story is when Glaeser recounted on how he got interested in learning economics.
When Glaeser was 10, his mother brought him along to her MBA classes. "Some adults remember fondly the first time they went to a major-league baseball game. Glaeser recalls a revelatory experience as a youngster when his mother sat him down and explained marginal cost pricing."
Hat-tip to Marginal Revolution for the pointer.
