A long pondered but only lately realized blog about economics, politics, evaluation, econometrics, Ann Arbor, academia, college football and whatever else comes to mind.

More on Farrell's
There are a couple of errors in the backstory at the beginning. Bob Farrell was having trouble and sold out to Marriott (!) at some point not long before I started working at Farrell's in the spring of 1979- my paychecks were Marriott paychecks. It was Marriott who sold out to the investor group shortly after I stopped working there in 1982. Also, it is just wrong that there were ever zero Farrell's. One of the original franchisees kept running stores in San Diego long enough to overlap the stores operated by the new group featured in the show.
