I used the phrase Amalgamated Rust (humorous name of
generic/fictitious corporation) recently and a friend asked me about
it.  I always thought it originated from a Bob & Ray routine but that
turns out not to be the case.  A quick search turned up a few
instances in economics textbooks but not much. Interested in any
information anyone has about frequency or origin.
