My wife and I went to the Apple Store yesterday and ordered an Apple Watch for her. We saw lots of interest in the product for the hour we spent testing, wearing and talking to others about the watch. Mrs. Knabe wants the watch because she thinks it looks cool and trusts Apple and the developers will come up with productive apps for her to use.
Economists are often characterized as stodgy and boring. Doing his best to prove that true is Paul Krugman who sucks all the fun out of the Apple Watch.
