Mick Jagger’s Favorite Economist

I’ve told people over the years that Mick Jagger, who was an economics major at the London School of Economics, stated that his favorite economist was Friedrich Hayek. Unfortunately, I didn’t remember where I had heard or read that and couldn’t find it on line.

But a person named David Lindbergh sent me a link to an episode of Saturday Night Live from February 6, 1993 in which he makes a comment about Hayek that would lead one to believe that his favorite economist is indeed Hayek.

The episode is here and he makes the statement about Hayek at about the 3:30 point.
