The Cowles Commission 的年會大家以此調唱下述歌曲
There was levity amid the serious research in this period too. The most notable bit was a skit by some of the junior staff members and others burlesquing the department of economics and its affiliates in songs set to the music of Gilbert and Sullivan’s operas and other familiar melodies. The Cowles Commission was featured in this one, to the tune of "The American Patrol" march:
We must be rigorous, we must be rigorous,
We must fulfill our role.
If we hesitate or equivocate,
We won't achieve our goal.
We must investigate our systems complicate
To make our models whole.
Econometrics brings about
Our esoteric seminars
Bring statisticians by the score.
But try to find economists
Who don’t think algebra's a chore.
Oh we must urge you most emphatically
To become inclined mathematically,
So that all that we've developed
May some day be applied!
