American Socialism

Tue Dec 7, 2004

I read with considerable pleasure James Surowecki’s essay on corporate welfare in this week’s New Yorker. His final paragraph, which refers to interburghal competition for corporate largesse as a Prisoner’s Dilemma, reminded me of how interested I am in the theological implications of that glum bit of game theory.

The Moretti and Greenstone piece he cites is available here. How hard would it be for publications such as the NY’er to add such links in their on-line editions?
