Up close and personal with Genius economist Kevin Murphy

Back in September I blogged about my admiration for Kevin Murphy after he won a MacArthur Genius grant.

Here are links to two interviews with Murphy that give you a real flavor of what he is like. The first interview is in the Chicago GSB magazine. Note the size of the truck he drives (it is in the background of the photo). Given the size of his truck, he has surprisingly small dogs (Jack Russell Terriers).

The second interview is a faculty smackdown, like the Becker smackdown posted here a little while back. Murphy discusses, among other things, his years bagging groceries.
