  1. Thanks for the shout-out, Brandon.

    By the way, the discussion between Paul Rahe and Sari Nusseibeh in the the Palestinian state symposium bears directly on the “trade leads to peace” thesis that Edwin discusses in a recent post here. Rahe is optimistic about the thesis (pp. 35-37); Nusseibeh is skeptical (pp. 64-66).

Please keep it civil
