He can be unlocked at  Rank 44.

The Shrink starts out multiplying workers by 9, but upgrading the researcher will only double the industry's power (x18, not x81).

The Shrink's artwork appears to be based on Grinch a character created by Dr. Seuss best known for the book How the Grinch Stole Christmas! and Shrek the main character in a film titled the same which is a film loosely based on the 1990 fairytale picture book of the same name by William Steig.
