I asked my 8-year-old how the rich United States could help horribly poor Bangladesh. He said, “Have 747s fly over Bangladesh and dump $100,000,000,000 out of the cargo bay. It will make them richer and help us at the same time.” Cute, huh?
Ha ha, got you. That wasn’t my son at all, it was the guy many of you consider the world’s most important economist.
(And this commenter nails it.)
