Re: Beyond Nature vs. Nurture (Will Wilkinson & David Shenk)

FWIW, I meant to add during the discussion with David that I don't really think Murray and Herrnstein fundamentally misunderstood what "heritability" means. Not to say that I've checked to be sure...

Re: Free Will: How Much Vote Do You Make?

Re: Free Will: Financial Apocalypse Explained

Hi Ginger,

I thought Arnold was uniquely positioned to clarify a lot of things that confused me and I'm sure a lot of other people. What part of Arnold's explanation of the crisis do you suppose...

Re: Free Will: The Grow-the-Economy Fan Club

In Japan,

(1) I do think it is self-defeating to try to implement a set of reforms that the public will resist. There needs to be a great deal of education before well-functioning markets in...

Re: Keep the Butter Away from Will, Kerry!

Baltimoron, I'm no Megan, who is truly awesome, but I am a decent cook! Kerry will not starve. Anyway YOU try making sense of Spencer Ackerman over a lousy earpiece while trying to make a pie crust,...

Re: Free Will: The Spontaneous Edition

You also say:

Re: WFB and BhTV

Peter, I'm not sure that Marlo's "My name is my name!" tirade in any way diminishes him. I thought it was a powerful portrayal of the logic of the street's honor culture. This is the ONE thing there...
