I like to rewrite abstracts, because I can understand the paper better then, and help the author that way too. Please don’t be offended; I rewrite my own papers this way too.

A good exercise for you is to try to rewrite each of these, and then to compare with what I did. I ought to look them up and put the originals into text form ot make this easier for you; maybe someday I'll do that. This is how the very good writer Benjamin Franklin learned to write, he tells us in his Autobiography:


A tax law abstract
An economics of crime abstract
An Economics of Immigration Abstract
