Arrived in my pile

Peter Blair Henry, Turnaround: Third World Lessons for First World Growth.

Here is a good interview with Peter Henry, who is also Dean of NYU Business School.

Then, upon my return from the Oklahoma trip, I saw Robert M. Edsel’s Saving Italy, and was surprised when the subtitle read The Race to Rescue a Nation’s Treasures from the Nazis.  (Perhaps Berlusconi would nonetheless give his autobiography that title.)  So far all I can learn about saving the current Italy is that electoral turnout seems to have been quite low, which lowers the reliability of previous estimates I suspect.  Does anyone out there know more?

My two-volume Liberty Fund edition of John Stuart Mill’s Principles of Political Economy arrived, and I will be rereading those for a future MRU course.

Two of the four candidates are convicted felons. Least of four evils maybe?

How amusing, we were probably at Red Prime around the same time, I should have stared at the other patrons more closely and had my copy of Discover Your Inner Economist with me.

I missed you at Meers by 24 hours.
