Happy Halloween!

In the spirit of this spooky season, in our second episode of Scary Stories From The Eek-conomy, we ask Tim Harford and Jared Bernstein why aliens and Germany are giving these economists sleepless nights.

Also, is it just Stacey or is the Halloween spirit a little drab this year? Where are the costumes, the pranks, the fake blood? Is this another economic monster we should look out for?
