The essays with bad grammar remind me of the crappy gift-wrapping service: “look, this is bad enough everyone will believe you did it yourself!”

Sadly, that excerpt is pretty much exemplary of the state of writing for the new generation of college students. Make sure that kid takes the composition course!

Does the graph in #6 make any sense? He has population “growth”/”inflation” at ~124% when it was closer to ~24%, and the total height of his right column bar doesn’t equal any permutation of proper multiplication of the two inflation factors that I can think of (his working paper says “health care prices grew 289 percent”).
