    Economics is either footnotes to Smith and Ricardo, or it is wrong.

    Why I Jumped Off The Ivory Tower

    What makes me pessimistic about my own university and public universities in the United States in general is that their inability to adapt isn’t due simply to bad leadership or an unfavorable economy. It’s based on structural features that are self-reinforcing. Poor leadership drawn from huge corporations, an incentive structure that favors narrow specialization, and a hostility to potentially disruptive research, all reinforce each other. Those of us whose interests don’t fit into that structure have some difficult decisions to make.

    Behavioral Economics is still tied to reality. Dan Ariely’s class at Coursera is magnificent.
