Tyler Cowen, proven wrong on PBS? – [VIDEO]

Brian Caplan tweeted that the GMU prof was wrong and the MIT prof was right. Is that your personal view? I am not impressed by the futuristic MIT gadgets, as they won&#8217-t necessary correspond to people&#8217-s needs. Hence, I don&#8217-t buy their argument that the real problem is not being capable of &#8220-keeping up&#8221- with the pace of technology. We don&#8217-t care about technology we don&#8217-t need.

French bozo economist David Thesmar is hiding his 2007 Op-Ed that stated that the financial crisis wont happen.

David Thesmar is a man of minutiae. He runs a website at his glory that lists any paper, book or editorial he has penned. Except for one.

Our French smart ass co-wrote an Op-Ed in July 2007, titled, &#8220-The mega-crash won&#8217-t happen&#8221- [PDF file]. Just everything in it was wrong, as the authors were defending the same rotten financial mechanisms and lack of regulations that generated the 2008 financial crisis.

Conveniently, this Op-Ed is not listed on his website &#8212-while all the other ones are. David Thesmar knows only one way to cover his ass &#8212-hide things under the carpet. How courageous.
