Haiku Economics

I support more haiku at all parts of public life. Judicial decisions should be rendered in haiku. Award ceremony acceptances speeches ought to be limited to haiku. Presidential debates should have haiku duel formats. The public address systems in airports ought to deliver only 17 syllables at a time.

Russ Roberts gets us started with a Hayekian haiku, or what he calls a "hayeku"
Why do we pretend
That “mandatory” spending
Is mandatory?
Something to ponder during the State of the Union.
