quote of the day

From "Don't Enlist":
So why do thousands of people continue to join the military? In most cases, the decision is a financial one – just like the decision to sell crack or become a prostitute.
At least the hookers and crack dealers are providing a service that people want.

the fatal conceit (paul krugman edition)

Brian Doherty catches a telling admission by Paul Krugman in the November 15th issue of Rolling Stone. Doherty notes:
Asked to name his great inspiration, [Krugman] says: Isaac Asimov's Foundation series--a tale of super social scientists who can accurately pinpoint laws of mass social behavior that allow them to predict, and manipulate, all of human civilization and future history. "That's always what I wanted to be," saith the economist turned pundit. Good luck with that project, Dr. Krugman.
