A word from David Friedman.

Commenting on the reference to his article “A Theory of the Size and Shape of Nations” in my post “Why Europe Then?”, David writes:

“That was my first journal article in economics--nice to see that someone still finds it useful.”

As all readers of that paper know, it is a seminal contribution to the economic theory of politics, and it is here to stay. I personally feel that it has been seriously underused in the literature until now, and I would be glad to know what the author thinks of Europe as a "t-nation".
