Glen Whitman In My Email

---------Hello out there. I recently received an email update from the Cato Institute. Included in it was this:

Against the New Paternalism: Internalities and the Economics of Self-Control, by economist Glen Whitman, examines the emerging theory that Coaseian externalities can also apply over time to one's future self, in the form of an "internality." Some have used this theory as a justification for government involvement in people's personal lives. Whitman develops the theory further and finds that there is in fact little rationale for government intervention in personal affairs.

---------Just thought that I'd let you know. Here is the link to the policy analysis.
