Following the dictates of the Public Choice Society to not attend the annual conference in Newport Beach because it was cancelled, Tony Gill successfully did not present a co-authored talk entitled "The Efficient Smoke of Burnt Offerings: Trust and Transaction Costs in the Gifting Economy."  This not-presented presentation included a poem based on Clement Clarke Moore's "The Night Before Christmas" (a.k.a. "A Visit from Saint Nicholas") that used imagery from Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol, just to confuse the audience and engage in mixed-metaphor arts. This poem, which summarized the paper, if available upon request.
