Routledge’s Karma: Free Stuff Alert!


Karma. The idea is that you do something wonderful and it will cancel out the awful deeds you do at some other point in time (okay, I’m taking liberty with my definition and giving a rather Catholic-tinged exposition but I’m not the first Westerner to do so). Routledge, it would seem, are balancing their karma almost perfectly these days having provided a load of free papers on and by one of the worst economists of the 20th century and one of the best. That is, Friedrich von Hayek and Joan Robinson respectively.

I’m only kidding, of course (well, sort of). But kudos to Routledge for doing this. And kudos to Louis-Phillipe Rochon — one of the included authors — for bringing this to my attention.
