D. H. Lawrence with Penelope Cruz Thrown In
My apologies for going middlebrow, but that's my take on the new Woody Allen movie, “Vicky Christina Barcelona”. PC almost pulls it out. Since this is an economics blog, I’d like to ask, has anyone else noticed that the money just seems to be there in Woodyland? People have jobs mainly as a source of identity, but in fact they just pass Go every now and then, and their bank accounts are recharged so they can enjoy the comfortable life without worrying about how much it costs. Only in this magical world would a woman’s choice between a young Wall St. go-getter and a “bohemian” artist have no financial implications.
