Wednesday, November 21, 2018

Armen Alchian's Prescient Advice To China

by David R. Hendersonvia EconLog
Monday, November 19, 2018

I’ve now finished working my way through the over 1,600 pages of Armen Alchian’s writing. (Note to self: when you agree to write a book review, keep in mind the book you’re reviewing. When I went back to the original email offer, I found that I was asked to review the single-volume 523-page Economic Forces at Work. Oh, well. Not the optimal use of my time, but not that far from optimal: I learned a lot and seeing Armen’s mind at work led to some nice memories of being in his class in 1972.)
