Oh Size! GDP maximizing size!

Several people, having heard about my research title, have cheerfully recommended this recent paper to me.

Yet it still took me by surprise when I saw the recent blog post entitled “Size Matters” on Greg Mankiw’s blog, which I subscribe on Google Reader. After a quick skim over the model part, I realized that it cites Mankiw 1992. Is it how it attracted Mankiw’s attention? That could be a ‘smart’ way to induce the popular American blogger(and economist!) to advertise an article on his blog.

Despite many possible flaws of that paper, I would say that the author does have a sense of humor in inserting a claim about “the GDP maximizing size” in the abstract!
