Beautiful picture - merry Christmas.

A very lovely picture. Have a Merry Christmas.

Is it a xmas market somewhere in north-central Europe?

Happy New Year!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from Iruña - Pamplona, Spain.

I am a reader from Germany, following your excellent blog regularly. When you shift the cursor over the above image, it reads "Christmas in Vienna." Having lived in Frankfurt a. Main, Germany, for a long time, I am pretty certain this is the Christmas market at Frankfurt am Main (there is another large city in Germany called Frankfurt an der Oder).

Christmas MARKET - somehow appropriate given the thematic emphases of your blog.

Two more pics from the Frankfurter Weihnnachtsmarkt, which seem to corroborate my impression:

Merry Chrismas to Coordination Problem, and keep up the excellent work.


Merry Christmas to all.

Happy Christmas

Thanks to everyone at Coordination Problem. I really enjoy reading your blogs and the conversations.

A friend opf mine living there has confirmed: it is Frankfurt am Main.

I did believe that this was the Christmas market in Vienna, but stand corrected by those who know better. BTW, this is another example -- be careful what you take as information from the web. As I say to my students all the time, the internet is a great source of information, but not of knowledge. Hope I remember that lesson throughout 2011 as well as trying to convey it to my students.

I agree with you, Mr. Boettke, and admire your attitude. May I add:

A standard argument over here in Germany, especially among school teachers, suggests that the internet is a very dangerous tool, as a means of dumping false and misleading information on the hapless. That's where the story ends with the teachers, who in reality are worried about the erosion of their Bildungsmonopol (monopoly of education). I tend to reply: there is no better tool to corroborate, falsify or establish the degree of credibility of whatever facts or theories in question than the internet.
