The Economics of Seinfeld

Anyone who knows me well knows that I'm a fanatic for Seinfeld. Culturally, I'm stuck in the nineties.

You can understand what a thrill it is for me to come across this gem. Economic professors from Eastern Illinois University are using classic scenes from the Seinfeld television show to teach us economic lessons.

For example, we can learn about cost-benefit analysis and game theory from the episode titled, the Barber. From the Muffin tops episode, we learn about economics bads and substitute goods.

Go ahead and take this opportunity to burn some time watching your favorite clips from the show. For once you have a practical reason to do it.
