just a note

A couple people have asked me, since Piketty’s Capital is on my summer reading list, if I’ll review it. The answer’s no, for the simple reason that I’m not equipped to offer an informed review. I just don’t have enough background in economics to say anything worth reading.  There’s tons of reviews you can read from people who know much more than I do– left, right, and center. It’s tough sledding for me. I’m a little more than 200 pages in, and I’ve already been reading it for two weeks.

I do, however, owe you a review of Gregory Clark’s The Son Also Rises, which I promise will be up early next week.
