Perverse Incentives In The Fur Trade

I’m pleased to see that Matt Yglesias seems to be reading Alan Taylor’s American Colonies.  The specific part he quotes is typical of Taylor’s accessible style and interesting approach.  I’ve recommended this book before as a good introduction to the subject, and I’ll reiterate that recommendation here.  Also good: American Slavery, American Freedom.
