Adding to my reading list

This is the sort of unanticipated problem with reading blogs creates. I have too much interesting reading in the queue as it is. Brad may have gotten some free time, but he’s going to cost me some of mine.

Notes: More Free Time Tomorrow.

Raj Arunachalam has cancelled his appointment with me tomorrow: he’s flying to George Mason to interview James Buchanan and Gordon Tullock.

I have owned seven copies of Buchanan and Tullock’s (1962) The Calculus of Consent: Logical Foundations of Constitutional Democracy in my life. I keep loaning my copy out to graduate students: “You haven’t read this? You must read this!” They keep liking it so much they don’t return it. So I go and buy another one.
