Pete Leeson Proposes an Economic Love Story

When Pete Leeson submitted his manuscript for The Invisible Hook, there was a surprise proposal hidden for his girlfriend Ania in the dedication and preface of the book. This initiated a year-long conspiracy between Pete and the staff of Princeton University Press and we’re happy to report Pete proposed and Ania said yes!

And in response, the blogging world exercised their right to puntificate on pirates to wish the couple well. Here are some choice highlights:
