The consequences of another type of dopey law come home to roost.
Fine lines from Arnold Kling:
Anyway, suppose we use the intention heuristic, which says that you judge something by its intentions, not by its results. By that standard, mass transit is great, and we need to spend more on it.
Professor JoAnn Manson of Harvard Med School writes that while we need randomized clinical trials, "the evidence is becoming quite compelling".
Scott Galloway, a professor of marketing at NYU--and who was really right, early, on how ridiculous WeWork's plans were--provides his thoughts on the future, post virus, of higher education.
The interview is interesting, but I'm skeptical of his main prediction that the Ivies and Ivy-equivalent institutions will grow tremendously, as in "In ten years, it’s feasible to think that MIT doesn’t welcome 1,000 freshmen to campus; it welcomes 10,000." MIT and the Ivies could have expanded enrollment a lot any time in the past 30 or 40 years. They didn't. While he discusses a bit why they didn't, I think he underestimates the power of the forces that keep those enrollments down.
"Givers and Takers: Democratic governors’ arguments that their states are 'donors' doesn’t hold water."
Leave it to Liberals to try to get almost everybody on government assistance but then to complain bitterly if, say, Wal-Mart employees try to collect some or folks living in red states. But this piece examines the claim that blue states are actually subsidizing red states.
What a surprise: even if they are, it's largely the fault of Liberal policies.
Well, it will be disappointing if it happens, but I, for one, won't be surprised. You could see it coming 100 miles off.
Steven Hayward at Powerline nails them good. (And enlists the services of Monty Python, too.)
Sidney Powell is concise, logical, and . . . ferocious.
