Quote of the Day


From Forrest McDonald's Recovering the Past: A Historian's Memoir (University Press of Kansas, 2004), p. 119:

So enamored did historians become [after Fogel and Engerman's Time on the Cross appeared in 1974] with the riches to be mined through cliometrics that a generation experimented with the technique. Little of consequence was learned as a result, and happily, the profession largely abandoned the approach. Unfortunately, our sister discipline, political science, has become almost wholly converted to it.

Peter G. Klein is Carl Menger Research Fellow of the Mises Institute and W. W. Caruth Chair and Professor of Entrepreneurship at Baylor University's Hankamer School of Business.
