My favorite street economists explore the curious parallels between the rising price of subway fares and pizza slices in NYC.

Some other examples of their field work:

  • Vend diagram – NYC street vendors affected by the recession
  • Checkmate – “America’s most valuable resource…is poor people. Poor people with checks.”
  • Bodega – Quarter water and the yellow food group
  • Ghetto Big Mac – Remixing the dollar menu
