A friend and RR reader emailed me the link to a Washington Times article by Richard Rahn that summarizes the economic history of Estonia. Readers may recall my posts from our 15-29jun08 visit back to the old sod (see posts under ‘My Story’, right column). Misplaced modesty prohibits my adding anything to the Rahn article. I only draw your attention to it as a part of the larger apologetics that may be seen to underpin my socio-economic biases expressed in these pages. As such, the source may all be in my double-helix, or perhaps in the water I drank as a young child. Hard to tell.
