Romer Out

Paul Romer is no longer involved with the charter city process in Honduras.  Steve Sailer’s take is fair, but a bit snide.  Government (and the oligarchs who prop it up) are the problem, and so there’s little incentive for them to introduce competition and institutions which may end up ruining their control of national power.

Next time, Romer &c should get a pre-nup before getting in bed with a government, I suppose…  But it doesn’t mean that they shouldn’t keep trying.  I don’t want seasteading to be the only potentially reasonable solution.
