I am an economist?

I identify very strongly with this but it's not a way to become popular in this world:

Old joke: Economist and non-economist are strolling in Manhattan. When they pass Carnegie Hall, the non-economist says wistfully to the economist, "You know, I’ve always wanted to learn to play the piano." The economist replies "obviously not."

I have an anecdote along these lines that was something of an eye-opener for me. But since I have exams looming, it'll have to wait.

Anyhoo, the source of that quote is well worth reading.
