Abstract

We shall restate in detail our 1959 objections to Simon's 1955 model for the Pareto-Yule-Zipf distributions. Our objections are valid quite irrespectively of the sign of ρ - 1, so that most of Simon's (1960) reply was irrelevant. We shall also analyze the other points brought up in that reply. © 1961.
