    His 1957 book, “An Economic Theory of Democracy, (New York: Harper and Brothers, 1957), has just under 5000 citations in Google scholar. Who knows if he is the “world’s leading authority” in real estate and urban affairs. Who knows if he’s really funny. Clearly, he’s trying to drum up some business.
