Garret posted another message today and asks:

“art laffer is a questionable source for information, imho. it’s his ‘laffer curve’ that got us into deficits in the first place. [i wonder, if the curmudgeon is reading this, if he could tell us what the rep for laffer currently is amongst scholars. the american economic association, at the time of reagan’s election, had very few proponents of supply-side theory. very few. i wonder how many currently are supply-side converts?] “

John, if you are reading this and could help out, we would be most grateful!

Tad Williams: Tad Williams

Tonight, André and I are going to see – and listen to – Tad Williams (deutsche Site), author of Otherland, the Memory, Sorrow and Thorn trilogy and several other books. He’s one of my favorite authors, so I’m looking very forward to tonight. He is going to read from his latest book, Montain of Black Glass, the third part of ‘Otherland’. The book has recently been released in German, but of course we bought it in English last fall while in the USA.

Since reading it, I’ve been waiting for the fourth and last part… (I’ve written about his books here (deutsche Version).

Here are two interviews with Tad Williams:


The Internet Movie Database is ten years old this month (on October 17th)!
