Jude's Writing

Has anyone questioned the Poly guys about what will happen to Jude's papers that were posted on the site? As I browsed the blogs on people interested in economics I thought these people should read Jude's writing. That is when it struck me that if the Poly site goes down we might lose access to Supply Side University. Any thoughts?

That would be a great shame and quite a tragedy if all of Jude's supply side lessons were to just disappear.

i would suggest that the Wanniski family provide a link to them all that links to the Wikipedia entry for Jude Wanniski. one that will last in perpituity.

It may be a generous legacy to allow legal reposting of his many worthwhile articles. I'd hate to copy/paste things his family would like to keep financially protected for their own income - but such a gesture would be a true gift and verification of his life's work. The best way, of course, would be a central clearing house, where his unadulterated words can be stored for distribution.

I wrote to ask for permission to archive Jude's articles on our website, but haven't received an answer yet. I would think the Wanniskis will want to take the course of action which will maximize the value and impact of Jude's work. That may not involve keeping it up on the web.

Are we talking about just the free memos or are we also talking about all the newsletters to investors over the years?

My understanding is that Mrs. Wanniski and probably ohers intend to see that Jude's work is preserved. I don't know how, where, or when, but the desire is there from the only people that can make it happen. In the meantime I'm sure many of us are archiving at least a few of the articles that seemed most valuable to us, as I'm sure have many others over the years. As has been pointed out there are obviously issues of rights that must be protected.

Is it possible that the though Polyconomics is closing, the wanniski.com site will continue?
