Friday Roundup, October 19th
- Garett Jones at Econ Log on human evil as revealed by economic experiments. Law and Liberty treated one aspect of this enduring feature of man in something of a different manner with Theodore Dalrymple’s superb piece, “Envy and the Undoing of American Mores.”
- Who’s Counting?: The Federalist Society sponsors a debate on Voter ID laws between John Fund of the WSJ and Debra Wydra of the Constitutional Accountability Center. The moderator is the wise John Samples who could teach a thing or two to those who do this on more popular, national stages.
- The things we can’t not know: John Taylor teaches Paul Krugman (link no longer available) on economic recoveries and the weakness of America’s “recovery” over the past 4 years.
- Will the faculty hiring discrimination bell toll for the University of Iowa School of Law? Walter Olson at Overlawyered has a coverage roundup.
- Ted Frank at Point of Law welcomes us to the Lilly Ledbetter Wealth Transfer Act where female workers get poorer, their attorneys get wealthier, and we call it gender equity.
- Vincent Phillip Munoz makes the religious liberty case against religious liberty litigation.
