This Explains A Lot

Moments ago, the following news broke across various news feeds:

BREAKING: Princeton U. to distribute meningitis vaccine not approved in the US to halt campus outbreak.

— NBCWashington (@nbcwashington) November 18, 2013

This is great news. But we wonder: considering the list of such prominent Econ department graduates as:

  • Ben Bernanke – professor of economics and public affairs, Chairman of the Federal Reserve Board
  • Paul Krugman – professor of economics, New York Times columnist,
    winner of the John Bates Clark Medal, Nobel Prize in economics (2008)
  • Alan Blinder- Vice Chairman of the Federal Reserve Board, 1994–96

… couldn’t this vaccine have been distributed some years earlier?
