Old Man Levitt
Once upon a time, my friend and co-author Steve Levitt was known as the most outstanding American economist under 40.
I have it on good authority that this is no longer true.
On May 29, Levitt turned 40.
His greatest birthday fear was that someone would throw him a party. He is fiercely anti-party, especially when the party is his. Things worked out as he wished.
And so now it’s safe to say: happy birthday.
