It's a joke, Jerry, it's a joke, with, incidentally a few side swipes at the
weaknesses of 'modelling without theory'.

Subject: [OPE] Paul Kruman, "The Theory of Interstellar Trade"


Perhaps the most significant contribution of Paul Krugman,

recipient of this year's Bank of Sweden Prize, to economic

theory is *attached*.


Who can deny that this is an extension of mainstream

trade theory to other worlds? It tackles the following

monumental and cosmic question:


"how should interest charges on goods in transit be computed

when the goods travel at close to the speed of light?".
