Peter Costello has singing economists in his sights. There’s quite a few who need to look out, including Geoff Brennan and me

    I am concerned about this. I do a bit of singing myself.

    Whether men do laugh or weep,
    Whether they do wake or sleep
    Whether they die young or old
    Whether they feel heat, or cold
    There is underneath the sun
    Nothing in true earnest done.

    Vaughan Williams, Drinking Songs after Shakespeare.

    Nicky Kador was also known to go the warble when the occasion presented itself.

    Also, I remember Ken Boulding doing a wrapup of a conference in rhyming couplets.

    Don’t tell Dr Nelson or Mr Costello that we sing in lectures at Griffith. I’m down to do backup vocals for David in week 13.

    Is the singing statistically significant?
