Definitely an eyebrow raising claim. Widener books that don't circulate sufficiently are "retired" to the book depository. Library staff used to mark them with little dot stickers (I forget what color). One of my friends used to remove the stickers whenever he spotted one in the stacks. I personally have checked out books that hadn't circulated in over 50 years from Widener (doing research for a history prof). But that doesn't tell you what the policies at Baker are.

A HOLLIS search suggests, though, that this claim is dubious: for example, Baker Library seems to be in possession of numerous List works in their 1840s editions.

Perhaps it is not correct, but how alien is the idea? How many of the papers published in the top journals of economics ever cite anything even 10 years ago? Are 'old' economic ideas really that bad, or has the profession simply adopted a view that nothing that old is worthwhile to them?

And what does this say for economics as a social science?

This is a serious issue - not only because of your own story - also mine!

In theory, I don't have much against Librarians. But this story tells a very different perspective on economics, as a subject.

Remember your log on opposing schools of economic -thinking and writing today!

Well it could easily be true that libertarian economics is taking over even Libraries - otherwise why discard valuable books?

If a library at which I had borrowing privelages was to announce such a policy at a time when I was not too busy, I suspecty I might make a point of borrowing a whole heap of books and then returning them straight away, just to avoid them being lost to future scholars for another fifty or so years at least.

The person who penned the notes mens timberland boots would add reflections to my thoughts and would always include some timberland pro boots quotes from poets and mystics he or she had white timberland boots read and remembered and loved. The notes fascinated black timberland shoes uk me. Here was someone immersed in a search for truth and beauty. Words had been cheap timberland boots treasured, words that were beautiful. And I felt as if the words timberland waterproof boots somehow delighted in being discovered, for they were obviously very generous to the as yet anonymous timberland work boots writer of the notes.

The only truth that exists timberland hiking boots is, in that sense, free. http://www.timberland6inch.com/

Many places and centers offer business and trade promotions to both buyers and supplier.What about the differences in skill intensities across industries? The job losses in the relatively unskilled-labor intensive battery industry should have little effect on the relatively skilled-labor intensive machinery
