I have combined all the chapters of the three volumes of my Autobiography in a single file, which I am now slowly proof-reading and correcting. This will take a while -- the bloody thing is eight hundred pages long -- but when I am finally finished, I shall post the entire file on box.net, so that anyone interested in it need not download a chapter at a time.
Meanwhile, I must get ready for a conference in Seattle at which I shall be speaking next week. The conference is the third A. A. Berle Center conference, located in the law school of Seattle University, a Catholic university in Seattle. Most of the twenty speakers are professors of law, and the theme of the conference -- hardly surprising considering the Berle connection -- is The Theory of the Firm. Professor Charles O'Kelley, the Director of the Center, invited me to present my paper, "The Future of Socialism." I shall be very interested to see what sort of reception it gets. It will be a nice opportunity for Susie to see her son, Jon, his wife, and their two sons. Jon helps to run an organization called The Children's Alliance that has for some years now been doing very effective advocacy work on behalf of children's needs and interests. He also sits on the board of the local newspaper of Seattle's homeless.
