The Economics department will be showing Moneyball this Thursday evening in Joseph Theater. Discussion will follow. I encourage you all to attend and blog about it. In fact, if you do, it will count as extra credit or can replace a missing blog post.

Based on a true story, “Oakland A’s general manager Billy Beane (Brad Pitt) challenges the system and defies conventional wisdom when his is forced to rebuild his small-market team on a limited budget. Despite opposition from the old guard, the media, fans and their own field manager (Philip Seymour Hoffman), Beane – with the help of a young, number-crunching, Yale-educated economist (Jonah Hill) – develops a roster of misfits…and along the way, forever changes the way the game is played.”
