The point of satire -- and perhaps all writing -- is to hold a mirror up to the world and then not flinch when it does. It's a cruel, but loving, act.

Background Information

Ehrlich wrote his first novel, Big Government, in a series of furtive moments during his career in government, intent on capturing the culture and values of politics before they captured him. It is widely regarded as the funniest writing to come out of Washington with which Ken Starr was not directly involved. His second and current novel, Grant Speaks, is the hithertofore undiscovered first draft of Ulysses Grant’s Memoirs, a satiric first person “tell all” in which the dying President and General rips the lid off the 19th century. He refers to it as “the most entertaining book we know of in which 600,000 people die.” He has also written radio plays, been an aspiring comic book artist, and was cofounder of Red Shadow: The Economics Rock & Roll Band, an all-economist, political band that sounded as bad then as the idea does now.

Birth Place
New York, NY 

Ev Ehrlich was born in a log cabin in a fifth-floor apartment in Jackson Heights, Queens: the inaccurate paper records of the day put it at 1950. After attending New York City’s prestigious Newtown High School, he enlisted in the student revolution at S.U.N.Y. Stony Brook, where he rose to the rank of provocateur before being discharged with a B.A. in 1971. Ehrlich has spent much of his career under the misimpression that he is an economist, a delusion fostered by earning a Ph.D. in that subject at the University of Michigan. As such, he has pronounced and declaimed in positions ranging from Under Secretary of Commerce (in the Clinton Administration) to Chief Economist of Unisys Corporation, to Assistant Director of the Congressional Budget Office. He is now President of ESC Company, a Washington-based economics consulting firm serving Fortune 500 companies, leading trade associations, and such diverse organizations as the Pew Center on Global Climate Change and the Major League Baseball Players Association. He is a regular economics commentator on National Public Radio’s Morning Edition, an occasional economics columnist, and much-sought-after (but never apprehended) speaker on business and the economy.
