Spotted: Cliffs Notes

Two red-badge toting interns sharing a copy of Adam Smith's Wealth of Nations ... Cliffs Notes version.

I won't bother elaborating further.

  1. That's pretty good. Props for catching that one.

  2. These days, I'm surprised the interns aren't walking around with Das Kapital.

    Frankly, we could do with a bit more Wealth of Nations.

  3. There is no Cliff Notes version of the Wealth of Nations.

  4. @pjlax34 I sympathize with the person who writes this blog - sometimes you just want to gett off something even if you know the correct answer. K. Mangu-Ward might have figured out what the interns were reading: http://reason.com/blog/#133980 and think the interns deserve points for good taste & a sense of humor, if they were reading O'Rourke's primer.
