Some scholarly fun

I just came across a fascinating book review from 1953 Clarence D. Long on The Structure of Labour Markets (Reynolds, 1951): it is basically a dialogue, one that I assume the (genial!) reviewer had with a hypothetical other. Could it be a Brechtian play a la Galileo? I'd watch it. A flavour:

"Have you read Reynolds' new monograph on labor markets? Quite a stimulating book."

"I've been seeing it mentioned lately; what's it about?"

"Well, its subtitle is 'Wages and Labor Mobility in Theory and Practice.' As a matter of fact, one of its chief findings ought to interest you men of theory. Workers do not, it appears, attach overwhelming importance to the wage rate."

[... the fun continues]

In other news, I'm citing an article by Mumford et al., and have to constantly stop myself from typing Mumford and sons. I don't even like Mumford and sons.
