When I read the CNN.com headline that Sarah Palin was “going rogue,” I thought the quote was meant in admiration.
It turns out the story is wholly negative, and “going rogue” is a bad thing.
That is not what my sister Linda told me when she gave me the moniker the “rogue economist.” She told me being a rogue is a good thing, and I believed her; just like when I was five and she convinced me that, since a penny is bigger in size than a dime, it is worth more. I happily traded all my dimes for all her pennies, cutting my net worth at the time roughly in half.
Even if being a rogue economist isn’t much, I suppose it is still better than being a rouge economist.
