I have leaner a lot about the economics of education — and a lot about applied microeconomics in general — from reading @KiraboJackson’s papers.
I'm teaching PhD Econ of Ed for 1st time (& loving it). Also, realizing I assigned 4 papers co-auth by @SarahCohodes & 4 from @KiraboJackson. What impressive research records! Course is slanted to K-12, explaining few #highered names in the longer list that follows…#EconTwitter

.@JonahDispatch on national conservatives: "All of their Dwight Schrute-like lectern pounding about industrial policy and bringing independent institutions to heel sounds very much in the mold of corporatism — the economic doctrine of fascism." gfile.thedispatch.com/p/slou…

"Of Boys and Men is a landmark, one of the most important books of the year, not only because it is a comprehensive look at the male crisis, but also because it searches for the roots of that crisis and offers solutions." High praise from @nytdavidbrooks nytimes.com/2022/09/29/opini…

I think there’s a strand in our culture that teaches people it’s a good idea to cultivate grievance and to rationalize picayune annoyance & aggravation as reflecting a larger struggle for justice but in reality it’s mostly better to do the opposite.

In this moment of peril, I must underscore my duty as Secretary-General to uphold the @UN Charter. The Charter is clear. Any annexation of a State’s territory by another State resulting from the threat or use of force is a violation of the Principles of the Charter & int’l law.

In his review of @RichardvReeves's important new book, @nytdavidbrooks closes with a correct observation: "Masculinity has gone haywire. Reverting to pseudo-macho cartoons like Donald Trump and Josh Hawley doesn’t help." nytimes.com/2022/09/29/opini…
