Compared to last year, I slowed down my scholarly production somewhat. Among other things, during the course of this calendar year I published a full-length law review article in the Chapman Law Review on Guaranteed Income: Chronicle of a Political Death Foretold and wrote up a new academic paper on Adam Smith in Love, which is under review at the Econ Journal Watch. In addition, I authored two substantive book reviews, one titled “Cowen’s Capitalist Manifesto“, a review of the paperback edition of Tyler Cowen’s love letter to big business; the other on “Frank Ramsey’s Contributions to Probability Theory and Legal Theory“, a review of Cheryl Misak’s intellectual biography of the English polymath.
Lastly, and perhaps leastly, two additional mid-year scholarly contributions of mine were inspired by the current pandemic: A Nozickian or Natural Rights Approach to the Coronavirus Pandemic, a mostly normative paper in which I explain why “non-essential” business owners are entitled to just compensation under the Takings Clause instead of meager scraps of PPP loans under the wasteful CARES Act, and Teaching Tiger King, to be published in the St Louis University Law Journal next year, in which I explain how I used the hit Netflix show “Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem, and Madness” to teach business law in an online format.
