Heavy Lifting - thoughts and web finds by an economist

Sporting News Today reports via Variety that the production of Moneyball, the story of how the Oakland A's used statistical analysis to discover undervalued players in the big leagues and put together a competitive team on a shoestring budget. This is a shame as the movie might be an interesting lesson in how private agents utilize information in unpredictable ways to serve their best interests, in this case with the positive spillover that A's fans were able to root for a winning team.
Another long-rumored Pitt project, Atlas Shrugged, seems to go through slightly different trials but with the same result. A potentially powerful movie for individualism goes by the wayside.
