Will Supplies Last?

Today's Freddie-Fannie Comment... Twilight of the Idols...

George Will writes,


The spontaneous emergence of social cooperation—the emergence of a system vastly more complex, responsive and efficient than any government could organize—is not universally acknowledged or appreciated. It discomforts a certain political sensibility, the one that exaggerates the importance of government and the competence of the political class.

This is in the context of a review of Russ Roberts' The Price of Everything. Will gives the book a good review in both senses of the word "good." That is, he praises it. He also honmes in on its main message.

Wouldn't it be ironic if, because of all the favorable attention Roberts' book is receiving, sellers were to run out of stock?

They'd have to stock it first. No B&N or Borders in L.A. carries a copy on its shelves, and none of the large local library systems has ordered a copy.

Being a burger flipper living in the land of $1700 rent, I cannot really justify purchasing a copy. But I have suggested it for purchase to both L.A. library systems and I trust the market will put some used copies into circulation, eventually, at a rate I can afford.

I have to recant. Barnes and Noble does have copies. So I can read it for the price of a couple cups of coffee.

Anyone know if there will be a Kindle edition?
