Dear Prof. Barnett ... (amv)

... actually, I am the 'fellow' mentioned by os in his most recent post. The reason my fellow colleague and friend never saw that book again has definitely something to do with the fun it makes reading it. But let the evidence speak:

Here is William A. Barnett in May 2004, interviewing Prof. Samuelson. As far as I can see, this interview is later (2007) published in "Inside the Economist's Mind: Conversations with Eminent Economists" as one of many outstanding interviews collected by Samuelson AND Barnett. So go and buy it.

So, I guess this time we are closer to the definition of "cheezy." This time, however, we had to make good a little damage.
