Merle Hazard is, as far as we know, the world’s only singing cowboy — singing about economics, that is. We love to feature his twinkle-toe takes on the much-hated college subject because 1) his songs are so funny, and 2) they so astutely encapsulate key issues in the dismal science, unsurprising since in the workaday world Merle is Jon Shayne, a sobersides Harvard-trained investment manager.
Will Merle Hazzard make the charts like C.W. McCall?
That song was a huge hit.
