"I just noticed CVS has started stocking homeopathic pills on the same shelves with - and labeled similarly to - their actual medicine. Telling someone who trusts you that you're giving them medicine, when you know you’re not, because you want their money, isn’t just lying - it’s like an example you’d make up if you had to illustrate for a child why lying is wrong." -- +Randall Munroe

The meaning of a PhD has changed significantly in recent decades. We are graduating more than ever before, yet the number of tenured faculty jobs continues to decline.

I used to be an enormous Tyler Cowan fanboy -- books like his collection "The Theory of Market Failure" were key to my development as a libertarian. Now, however, I have to say that I find more and more of what he has to say fairly clearly incorrect, which is surprising and saddening to me.
