If imitation is the sincerest flattery, then count us among the most flattered. In a recent issue of this Journal, Professor Michael Szenberg provides a number of arguments in support of eliminating the so-called "equitable ban" on authors' submitting manuscripts simultaneously to more than one journal. We found his arguments compelling, not the least because we made most of them more than a decade ago in The American Economist (1982), a journal edited-then and now-by the very same Professor Szenberg. We now elaborate the nature of that flattery and related ethics, although space prevents a comprehensive review of the parallel nature of our papers.
