Sargent Has 40 Pages Ready For Nobel Speech

So I read in this nice NYT article today. Tom had this interesting observation:
"I think you've got to watch out for anybody in high-school who says he wants to become an economist." 
And this one when he got to Harvard where fellow Nobel-winner Chris Sims was already a rock star:
"He was so brilliant I was afraid to talk to him."
You also don't want to miss the prediction of Sims's math teacher. And you can read the 40-year-old Sims article that Sargent said got him going.
