Here I am, sitting on a bench in downtown Budapest, reading the Guardian, when on p.20 I see a published debate between Bryan Caplan and Amy Chua. If I have one wish, it is that Chua would put her anecdotal points in the form of a statistical argument. Which assumption behind the twin adoption studies is she rejecting? Or where are those studies engaged in too much aggregation? I suspect she will never tell us. Coming back to the hotel room, I now find Bryan’s commentary on the debate. The two have very different senses of humor, and I bet she wouldn’t think that Bryan’s jokes are funny either.
