If says anything smart I take the credit since he is a former student. Like here. But it is *not* a slam on . just the opposite. He plays with the same rules as everyone else. Relative alpha.

Not speaking for , but personally I think the prohibitions on research are wildly overbroad and fundamentally misguided. I discuss my concerns here:

I would call this the creation act. Did it really pass both houses of Congress? It is awful and unenforceable.

this is a very odd piece. She advocates allowing people to contribute more to SS while they are working but is aghast at allowing the same thing later. What is the logic in that?

Yes, love this one. I assume you were prescient and bought the fake zoom shares at a nickel? Would be a great story.

Good thread. To which I would add this. A good rule of thumb is that Congress does not create policies that hurt their own members. The average age in the Senate is just about 62. Enough said.

Phil: you should take my advice to block him. Life becomes better for you and for those of us who want to avoid his diatribes. He seems to be taking our President as his role model, with rude adjectives for everyone. Nothing to be gained by engaging.

Yes my bad. Warren v Warner is hard for me. Dyslexia.

Funny for an ad man to say they “simply framed this wrongly”. As my old article with Kahneman and Knetsch showed, perceptions of fairness depend crucially on framing. So caring about fairness means caring about framing (though some actions are so awful there is no good frame).

This looks like a mess. How do you ban on-line retailers from running “experiments”? Is a “sale” an experiment? What about a change in font or color? Do firms offer a “no sales or promotions” option? Who will take it? By all means declare war on but get real .

We have often had such speakers at and I predict that will increase, but it depends on whether employers allow people to publish. As much as it pains me to praise him :), no one has done better on this front than AQR’s . It takes confidence.
