Who's That Guy?

Twice now at FEE, I've been introduced to someone who has said to me, "I loved your book on the Great Depression."

Of course, I've written no such book, but who are they mistaking me for? Murray Rothbard? Bob Higgs? John Maynard Keynes? Any ideas?

  1. People think I've said stuff that I really didn't, all the freakin time. Join the club.

    (And to head off the obvious reply: Bob really did trivialize the suffering of the victims of climate change and he heroically "stands by" his remarks. Just check the link.)

  3. I am trying to think of a joke regarding your psychological condition, Gene. But nothing is sufficiently clever to post.

  6. Maybe they're confusing you with that more well-known Callahan, Colleen?
