He’s a Republican, but a damn smart one. Greg Mankiw’s blog is one of my regular reads. This week, don’t miss:
- Why the Harvard administration’s promises to raiseÂ theÂ quality of instruction are probably just hot air.
- Why higher returns to education might be a good thing, even if theyÂ lead to more inequality.
- Why Barack Obama should back a higher petrol tax rather than tougher fuel efficiency standards (I made a similar argument in reviewing Obama’s otherwise terrific book).
