The Flatulence/Economics Connection

I originally came upon this via the excellent site Arts and Letters Daily. The article itself has it's moments, but what caught my eye was this......

"Levitt is a veritable gas guru, a leading expert on the underappreciated field of flatus -- intestinal gas that escapes via the southern route. He admits his unusual expertise has put his three kids (one of whom is economist and "Freakonomics" co-author Steven Levitt) through expensive universities."

I think anyone who has read much about economics has had the feeling that there was a connection.
