The blog is here, the subtitle is “taking the most charitable view of those who disagree.” Arnold is a favorite of mine, along a variety of dimensions I might add.
file this under “a small step toward a much better world.”
Henderson always struck me as more charitable than Kling (even if the former is a more dogmatic libertarian), who often seems kind of angry & bitter. He says his new book will be different.
I wouldn’t say he is more charitable, just more cheerfully voiced.
Similar to when my wife wondered why a relative was depressed, I wondered why they shouldn’t be depressed? Why shouldn’t Arnold be angry and bitter?
nassim doesnt think much of tyler’s cowen’s opinion of his book
So that’s why NNT is concerned about “anti-fragility”.
See, now between Cowen and Taleb I actually learn something because they don’t (always) engage in (c).
“I wonder whether Cowen read my book with any care.”
This made me laugh, for reasons that should be obvious to MR readers.
