The Economics of Enlightenment
I have a short piece [here is the pdf download link] in the current issue of Econ Journal Watch, commenting on the recent ‘economic enlightenment’ survey Daniel Klein and Zeljka Buturovic published there a while back (and which Klein wrote about in the Wall Street Journal.) And because today is Tuesday, I think we need some art. If you think that this conclusion does not follow from the premises, you would be right, but I would still call you a philistine.
Here’s Frans van Miereis the Elder’s painting, Brothel Scene.
1658, The Hague
