Ning Wang, editor of the journal Man and the Economy , invited me to write a paper for inclusion in his journal’s issue devoted to Deirdre McCloskey’s Bourgeois trilogy . I was honored and happy to do so. The paper – “The Idea of – and the Ideas In – Talk” – is now available on-line , although it’s gated.
Anyone who’d like the original typescript of the paper – which is close to, although a bit rougher than, the published version – can e-mail me to request it. I’ll send it to you.
