Carl's Latest Favorite Book

Postby Carl_Reginstein » Thu Oct 11, 2007 12:04 am

No, it isn't Springer's latest autobiography.....

It is this:

http://www.be.wvu.edu/divecon/econ/sobe ... apitalism/

The whole thing can be read online, or ordered. Online, of course, is free. Good stuff. I'll warn you. It is a bit dry unless you really ARE an accountant type.... or an economist. Or (gasp!) an actuary.

Speaking of actuaries, one of my good friends in academe once told me that the difference between an accountant and an actuary is that an actuary is an accountant WITHOUT a sense of humor.

But the message of this book is clear - live free, or die! Or at least be at the bottom of all the good categories and at the top of all the bad categories in terms of state comparisons until meaningful changes are enacted.

Montani Semper Liberi!

The satellite photos where it shows that industry literally stops at the state border are particularly interesting.

I skimmed through it and found interesting the economics foundation. Thanks, Carl.
