Post-tenure hobbies for economists

Daniel Parent with his restored tractor.

I am not sure if my hobby is going to seminars or being on dissertation committees. Maybe both.

"The juvenile sea squirt wanders through the sea searching for a suitable rock or hunk of coral to cling to and make its home for life. For this task, it has a rudimentary nervous system. When it finds its spot and takes root, it doesn't need its brain anymore, so it eats it. It's rather like getting tenure."-- Daniel Dennett

I am quite sure lots of people appreciate you staying in touch with your inner juvenile sea squirt.
