People Magazine for Economists

I used to subscribe to Econometrica and People Magazine. I dropped my subscription to the first one; not enough pictures. I have noticed that economists are under-represented in People Magazine. Jeff Sachs is sometimes there but not often enough. The world certainly needs a glossy magazine with nice color photos of economists. I thought about creating my own. During this time of recession, I wanted to create new jobs. But then I found out that Columbia's Econ Department beat me to the punch . How many Jim Heckman photos can you find in this issue?
