We all thought he was just an actor in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (RIP John Hughes) but it turns out Ben Stein was also an actual economist and then a game show host.  Turns out things are not so Ferris for Ben these days as he lost a fortune in financial stocks after calling them undervalued at what turned out to be the peak and now has been fired by the New York Times.  The official word is the dismissal is related to ethics valuations from being the pitchman for the not so free credit reports site Ben says it’s because of his involvement in a creationist movie.  We here at The Ski Channel, we just want to know the truth.
