Re: Economizing (Suzy Khimm & Megan McArdle)

It seems to me that they mostly play the role of middlemen skimming off the top. Think of it as if the US didn't print it's own currency and one had to get currency from the banks, and each bank had...

Re: Economizing (Suzy Khimm & Megan McArdle)

What is the difference between unregulated and regulated but unenforced? That's what we had during the Bush admin, regulatory agencies headed by people with no intention of enforcing regulations. ...

Re: Utterly Compelling Edition (Robert Wright & Jonah Goldberg)

The problem with Newt/Jonah's temporary payroll tax suspension idea is that just like the Bush tax cuts the GOP would be against reinstating the payroll tax because it would be a "tax increase." The...

Can we get an upcoming diavalog interviewing Ann?

I'd love to hear an update about her problems with Google. Last she mentioned it was in an diavlog with Matt Welch. It was unfortunate she was talking to a person who is a libertarian because he...

Re: Science Saturday: Sexist Skeptics (Ann Althouse & Rebecca Watson)

I agree with others, this was a disappointing SciSat. Would have been ok for a weekday.

After 10 hours of drinking in the hotel bar. My sympathy is with the guy in this.

Re: The Week in Blog: Non-Flaky Edition (Bill Scher & Alana Goodman)

Bill, you ask "why did Chris Wallace call Ron Paul a flake?" You forget that he infamously did ask such a question during the 2008 debates. I'm having trouble locating it on Youtube but I recall it...

Re: New diavloggers we'd like to see

I'd definitely like to see John Derbyshire of National Review do a diavalog.

Re: Diavlog of the Damned (Dave Weigel & Dan Foster)

On the topic of frank, bielet, housing, and blame, I don't think nearly enough was ever made of Greenspan admitting that he had made a mistake in assuming that banks operating in their own...

Re: Science Saturday: War of the Doves (Robert Wright & John Horgan)

Looking at that video, the intent of the baboons seems to be to only harm other baboons. Introducing a weapon makes it more likely to kill or cause serious harm. So maybe it's actually a...

Re: Magic Asterisks (Daniel Drezner & Megan McArdle)

It does seem to be worth $100k easy for Harvard. I don't see any shortage of Harvard grads in high up government, legal, and private sector jobs. But are the other schools really worth just $20-30k...

Re: Magic Asterisks (Daniel Drezner & Megan McArdle)

But oddly, I don't think Iran is acting out of uncertainty. They can be fairly certain that other countries will attack them, as other countries have done. For them to acquire nuclear weapons is a...

Re: Magic Asterisks (Daniel Drezner & Megan McArdle)

That presupposes that Iran has some kind of death wish. Immediately upon producing a nuclear weapon they would then use it to attack Israel and then a few minutes later Iran itself would be a...

Re: Magic Asterisks (Daniel Drezner & Megan McArdle)

I'm curious about what this means in terms of warfare. Is a cyber attack an act of war? Is the proper response to a cyber attack a conventional attack or is the response restricted to cyber...
