Comparative Advantage at Work

Hardly anyone in America bothered to notice when an English soccer player and his singer wife visited the United States recently, the Reuters wire service writes. (The Reuters story is based on a New York Post report.)

The story informs us that David Beckham, O.B.E., a Real Madrid Manchester United player and his wife, ex-Spice Girl Victoria, were in the U.S. on a promotional tour. However, little actual promotion apparently took place. It was so underwhelming that the Post informed Posh and Becks -- or, as one would say in Cockney 'rhyming slang,' Bosh and Drecks -- they ought not "come Beck."

Ouch.
