Market Conditions in Atlanta>Question Details

Did you hear the joke about the mathematician, the accountant and the economist ?

Asked by Lee Taylor, Decatur, GA Thu Jan 17, 2008

To follow though on my recent question about the mysterious economists at http://www.housingpredictor.com who named Atlanta the 10th worst market in the USA for 2008, I remembered a joke that should add some levity to the debate.

A mathematician, an accountant and an economist apply for the same job. The interviewer calls in the mathematician and asks “What do two plus two equal?” The mathematician replies “Four.” The interviewer asks “Four, exactly?” The mathematician looks at the interviewer incredulously and says “Yes, four, exactly.” Then the interviewer calls in the accountant and asks the same question “What do two plus two equal?” The accountant says “On average, four - give or take ten percent, but on average, four.”

Then the interviewer calls in the economist and poses the same question “What do two plus two equal?” The economist gets up, locks the door, closes the shade, sits down next to the interviewer and says “What do you want it to equal?”
