Econ Posters: Now By Real Economists!

First, we published a few minimalist economics posters that we cooked up ourselves. Then, we published posters that readers sent in. Now, we bring you minimalist econ posters by actual economists.

Justin Wolfers, a professor at Wharton, tweeted this rough sketch last week.

Inspired by Wolfers, we badgered some other economists. We got sketches back from Tim Harford, FT columnist and author of Adapt, and from Jeffrey Ely, professor at Northwestern and co-author of the blog Cheap Talk.

We turned all three sketches into posters.
