. Tuesday, November 18, 2008


I talk about pirates (click on pirates for a very cool map) in my intro course in connection with the public goods hegemons provide--seas safe for commerce.

NPR had a nice piece on the rising incidence of such incidents. The shocker: "this is really the best thing Somalis have going for them economically. Piracy and ransom this year will exceed more than $50 million — it's Somalia's largest income-earner."
