We are excited to have Lee Coppock, an economist at the University of Virginia and friend of mine from graduate school, guest blogging for us over the next week. Lee is visiting Liberia on a private aid mission and will be giving us an on-the-ground perspective on economic growth, culture, institutions and aid. Lee visited Liberia last year but tells me that at that time he was afraid to visit the downtown internet cafe. This time he promises to risk it on behalf of the revolution, the Marginal Revolution! Thanks Lee!
