Orson Scott Card on Scroogenomics

via haikujaguar, a review of Scroogenomics by Orson Scott Card. There's a nice disquisition on the historical/social roots of gift-giving by way of indicating that Joel Waldfogel, the author of Scroogenomics, is one of those economists who knows the price of everything and the value of nothing. You may not care for Card's politics, but he's still worth reading.
