Theory, Evidence, and Belief— The Colonial Money Puzzle Revisited: Reply to Michener and Wright



Econ Journal Watch contacted me for the first time about this exchange just one month before this appears. I had about two weeks to write this reply such that it would appear along with the Michener and Wright comment published here, rather than in the subsequent issue. Because I believe for readers’ sake that authors should reply and should follow hard on the heels of their attackers, I have had to work in sudden haste. I apologize in advance for the reply’s rough and unpolished hue.
