Do I Want to Connect with my Mother on LinkedIn?

This is my last blog post for 3 weeks so I will leave you with a deep thought about LinkedIn connections.  I'm wondering if the rate of progress in economics would double if LinkedIn would stop sending all of us crazy emails that take time to contemplate and respond to. Here is the one I received today supposedly from my mother.

Hi Kahn,
I'd like to connect with you on LinkedIn.
Carol Kahn
Appellate Attorney

I do not believe that my mother actually sent this email because she has never called me "Kahn" before.  The only people I know who would call me that are Gary Becker and Ed Glaeser.   I certainly agree that all three of them have earned the right to call  me that.
