This may kill the market for Haunted Houses

From Marginal Revolution's Tyler Cowen:

A woman's effort to assuage her 6-year-old son's fears of his grandfather's ghost by selling it on eBay has drawn more than 34 bids with a top offer of $78 [TC: the price is now up to 15K, as of Sunday morning].

Mary Anderson said she placed her father's "ghost" on the online auction site after her son, Collin, said he was afraid the ghost would return someday. Anderson said Collin has avoided going anywhere in the house alone since his grandfather died last year...

And if you'll buy that, can I interest you in the ghost of the Brooklyn Bridge?
