SIPA and The Simpsons

I am not what you would call an avid follower of The Simpsons television show, however I do watch it occasionally and have always been impressed with the way the creators integrate “real” people into episodes.

Recently I received an email from an alumnus of our program notifying me that a SIPA faculty member was mentioned in an episode.  Jagdish Bhagwati is professor at SIPA and from what I understand, what you see below is a ballot created on the show to help guess the winners of Nobel prizes.  One SIPA professor, Joseph Stiglitz, actually did win the Nobel Prize in economics in 2001.
