Top Ten Economist Valentines

10. You raise my interest rate thirty basis points without a corresponding dropoff in consumer enthusiasm

8. What do you say we remeasure our cross-elasticity
7. You bring the butter, I'll bring the gun
6. Let's raise housing starts together
5. Further stimulus could result in uncontrolled expansion
4. Tell me whether my expectations are rational
3. Let's assume a ritzy hotel room and a bottle of Dom
2. You stoke the animal spirits of my market
