Congratulations to my former professor Tyler Cowen on his new book deal with Dutton/Penguin. Dutton seems to be cornering the market on famous people authors: Al Franken, Jenny McCarthy, Ron “Tater Salad” White, and yours truly .
It looks to be a hodge-podge of things he likes to blog about on Marginal Revolution. You probably wouldn’t guess it from reading this site, but MR is what inspired me to start blogging. I can’t wait to read it. A blogger friend of mine recently asked me how on earth Tyler posts so much good content. The thing is, I didn’t even notice. I don’t know him very well, but I did take two classes from him and talked with him on occation. That’s just how Tyler is. He’s full of excellent ideas, and he’s always willing to talk about them with anyone. Blogging had to have been invented with him in mind.
He’s taking title suggestions, so if you have one pass it along. I suggest, “Lunch With Tyler,” because reading MR is a lot like having lunch with him.
