Going academic

While my contempt for the present university system, such as it is, runs both deep and wide, I was nevertheless pleasantly surprised to be informed by a professor at a large university of his intention to make use of RGD in one of his upper-level economics courses. So, at least one group of economics majors won’t graduate without ever having heard of the Austrian School or learning about the intrinsic unreliability of macroeconomic statistics.

UPDATE – In other book-related news, a Muslim reader has informed me of his intention to translate TIA into Arabic; apparently someone has translated the first four chapters of Dawkins’s The God Delusion and he decided to see that the other side was represented. He said he’ll send me a PDF when he finishes, and I’ll post it here for download. I think it’s great, but I have to confess that it never occurred to me that the first language any of my books would be translated into would be Arabic. Go figure.
