Come on, play the game --- UCLA, UVA, VPI, NYU, Auburn, etc. grads.

Horwitz will probably have the same family tree as me, but I wonder how Prychitko would fill this out!

Pete, where would you put Hayek?

You neglected to name the earthworm at the bottom!

and the skeleton? Keynes?

This makes my head spin.

This really doesn't make sense in my case. For me there are two lines: one the Chicago line -- Knight, Stigler (although not the chair of my dissertation committee).

The other an Austrian line: Mises, Hayek, Lachmann with Rothbard eventually disowning me (as he did with all independent-minded people). Both lines remain important to me. Kirzner is an older colleague whom I must say I found a bit too reluctant to adopt or entertain new ideas. But he was a valuable critic.

Overall, I have a real problem with the notion of an "advisor" when it means something more than one's dissertation chair. (And for me my dissertation was not an important part of my scholarly experience -- just an irritant. My chair was William Landes, a very competent and good person.)

From these difficulties the whole structure in the picture is a confusion to me.

Sorry, I do not play games well.

I don't suppose you will know the management sorts here but I'll do it for laughs.
