Starting on Monday, I will be writing a long series of posts on Charles Karelis‘ utterly original book, The Persistence of Poverty.  I’d compare him to a left-wing Robin Hanson – gnawingly thought-provoking even when he’s mired in error.  (Don’t miss Robin on Karelis, by the way).

The Persistence of Poverty is so well-written and concise you can finish in two hours.  And used copies cost less than $2.00 on Amazon.  So give it a try, and see you Monday!

P.S. Charles says he will be happy to answer your questions.  At the end of the series, I’ll put up a special thread for queries to the author.
