For most economists, RBC means real business cycle. For me, it means Richard Ben Cramer. I'd like to third the Ezra Klein nomination of an RBC Appreciation Day (HT Josh Green for seconding it):
Last week, Ben Smith at Politico published a long (for Politico) and terrific piece on Richard Ben Cramer, the veteran journalist and author of the seminal 1992 campaign book, "What it Takes." ... Ezra Klein, political journalist and RBC admirer of a slightly younger vintage, has had the inspired idea of declaring today "Richard Ben Cramer Appreciation Day." So let me add my wholehearted support.
