Is that shoe pastry?

A wonderful miscorrection of the Economist by Stephen J. Dubner on his Freakonomics blog on the New York Times website.

In the extract below from the Economist’s London Stock Exchange index, he suggests that pasty should read pastry.

"In the hills north east of Mexico City it is not uncommon to find Cornish pasties for sale."

Some research needed before you go correcting people, Stephen.
