The economics of Batman
B.K. Marcus has put the ol' Austrian spin on this past weekend's #1 movie, Batman Begins. It is, he says on his blog, "the most self-consciously economically minded comic book movie" he's ever seen. Says B.K.:
"Many libertarians celebrated The Incredibles for its Randian individualism and bourgeois family values, and I can join them in much of that... But for my money, the more interesting questions are asked by Batman Begins -- even if the answers it hints at are sometimes less than satisfactory."
