  • .@PatrickIber Agatha Christie, Autobiography, p. 255: “Looking back, it seems to me extraordinary that we should have contemplated having both a nurse and a servant, but they were considered essentials of life in those days, and were the last things we have thought of dispensing with. To have committed the extravagance of a car, for instance, would never have entered our minds" Jun 20, 2015

  • @jbarro Given that my best friend from 2nd grade just lectured me for half an hour at dinner about how this repeats the EU’s mistake of setting in unamendable stone international institutions that may be badly flawed and that we don’t really understand how they will work on the ground, I think you may have to wait a long time then. Surely there’s someone drawing a paycheck from the administration willing to make the technocratic case in words of relatively few syllables. Isn’t there? Jun 16, 2015

  • .@charles_gaba it depends on whether doctrines like “federalism” & “= dignity of states” are real doctrines or partisan Repub weapons only. Respect for federalism and for the equal dignity of the states requires HHS and Sup Ct to take state at its word if a state passes a law or governor issues executive order stating that it ordains and establishes exchange

  • .@Noahpinion I’m just reading Tocqueville on American policy toward the Indians: “The evils enumerated above are great, and to me they seem irreparable” Not much of a melting pot there, is there? Today’s Economic History: Nineteenth Century Amerindian Removal https://t.co/gUs7BQjno5 .@atlemar no, I don’t fear my students. I like my students a lot… we meet our interlocutors where they are. First job of professor is to figure out where they are, and so where to meet them… In talking to Sailer, we say not “evolution is true” but “evolution is true, but recognize human generations are 20 years” UC Policy is: think who your students are & where they come from, & don’t be a dick. FoxNews wants me to be a dick. I decline. Jun 15, 2015
  • .@Noahpinion in the Republican heartland, “America is a land of opportunity” is often part of an argument ending: “it’s the Negroes fault!” If it is a melting pot, how come west-country Puritanism still 50% of its culture? As you know as well as I do, “land of opportunity” ≠ “land of opportunity for voluntary immigrants”. I mean "America has always been a land of opportunity for all" strikes me as not a micro but a macro aggression... Jun 15, 2015

  • .@HeerJeet @YAppelbaum Why doesn’t anyone at the New York Times appear to know Pickett’s Charge was a costly, futile, ill-advised disaster? .@froomkin most interesting question for me is why did the NYT reporters pick that quote, and what did they think they were doing? usually there is a wink-wink somewhere in the text. This is told absolutely straight…. yes, that is the question. As I.F. Stone used to say, the real news is this is being reported now in this way cc: @froomkin Jun 14, 2015
  • .@Noahpinion & how is it that these rare disasters have no effect on the likelihood that government bonds get repaid without inflation? low equity prices are low relative to government bonds. Catastrophes in which both go to zero or its neighborhood are irrelevant to the relative price. Catastrophes that hit stocks but not government bonds are unlikely to be large enough to do the job. Catastrophes help by amplifying the utility cost of risk and holding the standard deviation constant by concentrating probability mass in the lower tail. But they do not help that much unless they are really large--in which government bonds lose value too, and the only asset classes that hold value are bottled water, sewing needles, and ammunition...
