Jagdeep noted that he has been out of the country and won't resume blogging till about now. I haven't been blogging because I've been frantically trying to finish grading papers and exams. (This is the only truly bad part about being a law professor.) I'm out of the country -- in Zurich -- for about a week before returning to Chicago for a conference largely organized by my colleague Lee Fennell on the commons and the anticommons. While I'm in Switzerland, I'm going to be teaching a short course to a law faculty on law and economics. I'll share some of my impressions after our first class on Monday. Later in the week I'll blog from the commons-anticommons conference.
In the meantime, let me pass on the news that In passing through London on my way to Zurich I noticed that Levitt and Dubner's Freakonomics is out in paperback in England, published by Penguin, and is the number 1 or 2 best-selling paperback in most stores I visited.
