More evidence that OA editions help sell print books

Jeffrey Tucker, Kinsella Vindicated, Ludwig von Mises Institute Blog, August 22, 2008.  (Thanks to Kimmo Kuusela.)  Excerpt:

This is despite its having been [free] online for six years and remains so, in two formats. What a way to demonstrate a thesis. If you have something that is valuable to others, people might be willing to pay for it.
