Which Economist is Your Valentine?
Go on, take the quiz to see which economist best represents your philosophical world view. Which Economist Is Your Valentine? (QUIZ)

I took it and here is the final result. Naturally, I am not a bit surprised by it either. Just one look at my avatar is all it takes. S22

Quote:our result: Friedrich Hayek

[Friedrich August Hayek (May 8, 1899 – March 23, 1992) was an Austro-Hungarian born economist and philosopher best known for his classical liberal apologetics. In 1974, Hayek was awarded the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economics along with Gunnar Myrdal, “for his pioneering work in the theory of money and economic fluctuations and for his penetrating analysis of the interdependence of economic, social and institutional phenomena.”

Fun Fact: Hayek served as an officer during WWI and then went on to choose economics because of his desire to improve social conditions, namely the poverty of postwar Vienna.
Have a Gneiss Day!
Mine came back Milton Friedman.

"Milton Friedman (July 31, 1912 – November 16, 2006) was an American economist, statistician and writer. Having taught at the University of Chicago for several decades, Friedman was instrumental in the development of the Chicago school of economics. He spent years challenging socialism and advocating for a free market economic system with limited government. In 1976 he was awarded the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences in part for his work on monetarism.

Fun Fact: Friedman was awarded the National Medal of Science and the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1988."

Bad test. Monetarism isn't a byword for me. Only one question was relevant and it was ambiguous.
