Job search, 40 times a month

I got lots of very helpful responses to my recent post on the search theory of unemployment, here and at Crooked Timber. But it has occurred to me that I haven’t seen any answer to one crucial question: How many offers do unemployed workers receive and ... [Published Crooked Timber - 8 hours ago]

Give It Your All – Then Give Some More

Everyone’s complaining about the dumbness of the use-100%-of-your-brain premise for Lucy. (Which I expect is a bad movie.) I have an idea for a superhero that I think fixes this problem. Coaches are always yelling at players that they need to ‘give ... [Published Crooked Timber - Jul 31 2014]

Uncle Tom’s Cabin

The concept of self-ownership came up in discussion as a result of my passing slap at Nozick in the post on Austrian economics and Flat Earth geography. I’ve been planning posting on some related issues, but I realise there are some critical points I ... [Published Crooked Timber - Jul 29 2014]

The Higher Sociopathy

In the annals of moral casuistry, you’d be hard pressed to find a better example of the perils of moral reasoning than this defense, brought to you by The New Republic , of the slaughter of Palestinian civilians in Gaza: We can say that there is a ... [Published Crooked Timber - Jul 28 2014]

Austrian economics and Flat Earth geography

One of the striking features of (propertarian) libertarianism, especially in the US, is its reliance on a priori arguments based on supposedly self-evident truths. Among[1] the most extreme versions of this is the “praxeological” economic methodology ... [Published Crooked Timber - Jul 28 2014]

A Gaza Breviary

1. One benefit of the carnage in Gaza is that it has given people who’ve never said a word about the carnage in Syria an impetus to say a word about the carnage in Syria. 2. On Friday night, there was a fundraiser for “Friends of the IDF” at a synagogue ... [Published Crooked Timber - Jul 27 2014]

Philosophically, recent protestations by conservatives that ‘liberals are the intolerant ones now!’ are flim-flam. I say so. Brendan Eich. Hobby Lobby. Same-sex marriage. I get why they have to play it that way, trying to turn the tables. It’s such an ... [Published Crooked Timber - Jul 27 2014]

Hazlitt, Keynes and the glazier’s fallacy

I’ve been working for quite a while now on a book which will respond to Henry Hazlitt’s Economics in One Lesson a book that was issued just after 1945 and has remained in print ever since. It’s an adaptation of the work of the 19th century French free-market ... [Published Crooked Timber - Jul 25 2014]
