a note from a Freeman reader

One very pleasant aspect of publishing in the Freeman is that I get to see the online article first, then a couple of months later I receive the print magazine (seeing my stuff in print still has a special appeal, much as I advocate digital), and then a few weeks later I sometimes get the more thoughtful notes that come from print readers:

Subject: Black Death and Taxes

Dear Mr. Marcus:

I have been reading The Freeman for fifty years or more now, and even though it is reaching the point that nearly everything in it is something I have heard before, every once in a while it supplies me with a new insight or piece of enlightening information. That was the case with your article in the most recent issue. When I read it I immediately rushed across the anteroom in the social science complex here at MSU-Northern to see what my colleague, a historian of libertarian inclination thought, and he confirmed everything you said.

Thanks.

James R. Edwards, Ph.D. (Economics)

  1. Congrats, B.K., on the many compliments your articles in The Freeman always generate, and a special thanks to Dr. Edwards, who comes from a state where I pull out about 30 or so trout every summer! — Lawrence W. (Larry) Reed, President, FEE.
