    Erm... serious? :crazyeye: I don't read all off-topic threads, and since I've never seen you talk about it I just wouldn't have made the connection.

    Well, you don't need economy for that. It's just biology. People feel cold, so they instinctively use the best and most insinctive stratgy to keep the warmth of their bodies. And that strategy just happens to be eating more fat so you become fat.

    I'm fairly sure the Fed can employ more than 1 economist at a time. :p

    Depends on the agency and how they are funded, taxpayer or own funded.

    The model I work with will only hold for largish cities. I can control for climate, food prices, wages, housing costs, and other factors you'd suspect.
