Economist job more exciting than most think

Michael Hicks, writing for the Indianapolis Business Journal:
Recently, my wife has stopped calling me an economist. It is too hard to explain what I do, so she calls me a professor (which has far more cool points to Harry Potter or Gilligan’s Island fans).

Her reticence begs the question, “What does an economist do and why would anyone want to be one?” . . . .
