Gertner on Glaeser

I’m a bit late on this but last night I finally read Jon Gertner’s profile of economist Ed Glaeser in this Sunday’s New York Times Magazine. It’s a wonderful article, to my mind a great example of what happens when you’ve got a smart, interesting, candid subject and a smart, curious, agreeable writer. We learn a lot about economics from it, and not just regarding Glaeser’s theories on zoning and real estate. I will say this, however: it’s probably time for the Times Mag. (and I’m among the guilty here) to lay off the Harvard econonomics dept.: is there anyone working there who hasn’t yet been profiled?

I need help. I'm trying to find some books about taxation policies and how their social outcomes. Something that could be described as a sociological critique of the taxation policies.
Anyone can help?
Thanks.

I'd like to see the Times profiling some professors at the Rochester Institute of Technology. In economics, anyway.

The Times magazine been awfully quiet about the debacle in Russia, and the involvement therein of Andrei Schleifer and Larry Summers.
