In "My answer to The Grumpy Economist," you ask if Chicago faculty travels south of 61st Street. I really don't know.
But maybe they did travel to Cabrini Green, a federal government housing project.
Or maybe they took a trip down memory lane to remember the Carter-era Synfuels Corporation
Maybe they traveled to Fremont, CA to visit Solyndra
Perhaps they went hiking in Europe on the Butter Mountain
Or to seek evidence of good government policy they paid a call on Fannie Mae
I don't know, maybe they stopped by candidate-Obama HQ and heard what the Grumpy Economist pointed out: Medicare spending is unsustainable.
