Guns, Germs, And Private Equity


I’ve been pretty busy–too busy to do a lot of blogging–but I thought I should point this out:

I didn’t realize that, for some time, Mitt Romney has been quoting from Guns, Germs, and Steel to explain his view of the world and the way to develop healthy economies.

Normally when I talk about a book I put up a buy link for interested readers, but not this time. While Diamond’s book is interesting, it’s not something you want to base an economic policy on.
