Why Do I Keep Thinking that William's First Name Is "Richard"?

As in my recent link to here: William Easterly (2009), "Why there’s no “GrowthGate:” Frustration vs. Chicanery in Explaining Growth".

I think the answer is that "Easterly" is just a little too close to "Easterlin," and my brain is now full: there is one and only one pattern of neurons that fires when I think about a very smart economist interested in economic growth whose last name begins with "Easter"...
