--Sir Thomas More (A Man for All Seasons)
So much foolhardy commentary is posted on social media that it is easy to build an immunity to it after a while. Every now and then, though, one stumbles across posts of such extraordinary idiocy that they are difficult to ignore.
The post above comes from a professor of economics at the University of Utah. He did his undergrad at Oxford and his doctoral works at the University of Chicago."There is, in fact, in the writings and teaching of those who nowadays call themselves “economists,” no longer any comprehension of the operation of the economic system as such." - Ludwig von Mises https://t.co/F1GH9dRFwv— Mises Institute (@mises) January 31, 2020
How someone like this gets past his comprehensive exams much less defends his dissertation and gets hired by an R1 university is beyond my comprehension.
