More on Economists as Cheapskates

From the Freakonomics blog that says it's just because economists understand and believe in the idea of comparative advantage: "Alan Blinder has said that he wouldn’t trust an economist who mowed his own lawn, because it reveals that they don’t believe deeply in the principle of comparative advantage. And what goes for mowing your lawn surely holds equally for trimming the tree."
