I am quite literally trapped in the mountains of Central Asia – the Amu Darya has flooded out the roads in both directions. This being the case, posting will be (very) light until the 24th, though I still hope to briefly discuss a few papers from the new Econometrica. While I wait for the waters to recede, I’ll be up in the solitude of the Pamirs. As you know, economics, especially the micro theory that is the focus of this blog, is the only social science where the best work can be done without any social interaction at all!
(Now was that last line serious, or tongue-in-cheek? I leave it for you to decide…)
cute. now that you’ve read pirsig and commented, try miller’s tropic of cancer.
