Glaeser on the Lorax
Courtesy of Greg Mankiw‘s blog, here is a link to Ed Glaeser‘s interesting critique of the Dr. Seuss story The Lorax on The New York Times‘s Economix blog.
This is yet another example of how so many things that are supposed to be environmentally friendly turn out not to be in the end. Glaeser finishes off the piece with a great anecdote about Henry David Thoreau that I have never heard before.
I am told that Glaeser’s next target is Goodnight Moon.
