A life among the econ

William Allen's story of academic life in the UCLA Department of
Economics. http://bit.ly/evYVND.

There's a lot of good stories here: journals that won't publish your
work unless you stick in some mathematical formulas, the trials of
being a department chief, etc. He tells the stories well. I am not
sure that he gets the moral of the story right, though.
