What's happening in monetary policy and macroeconomics.

This questionnaire from the NYT is fun. I have what I'm told is a strong southern Ontario accent, and I've picked up some things from living in the U.S. midwest. The questionnaire tells me that I have nothing in common, in terms of dialect, with most of those east of the Mississipi and south of Ohio, most of the eastern seaboard, and Texas. I have most in common with people in Minneapolis/St. Paul and Buffalo NY. Everyone knows that Minnesotans sound a lot like Canadians (and behave the same too), and I grew up 90 miles from Buffalo, as the crow flies. That's pretty accurate. If they had questions about out and about, they would have done even better.

Steve, do you still put "eh" at the end of sentences? Just joking! By the way, will you be in Philly for the AEA meetings?ReplyDelete
I did use "eh" a lot at one time. Before da hockey game, we went for a few beers, eh. Were drivin through town, and nearly run into a moose, eh. But I stopped doing it to avoid being teased, eh.Delete
No, this year I'm not going to the meetings.
Aha. I knew it: you and Krugman do share a brain. Which one of you posted first?ReplyDelete
It's a love-hate relationship.Delete
He posted first. That's how I learned about it. I love Paul like a brother.Delete

Maybe 25 questions doesn't take us very far.Delete
