Touring San Jose

After being taped for a documentary on the Fed, I went over to San Jose State University to have dinner with David R. Henderson and Mark Brady. (Jeff Hummel was teaching money & banking so couldn't make it.) On the way to Mark's office I passed a lecture and thought I recognized the professor and yep, it was Emily Schaeffer talking about the median voter theorem or something along those lines. (I didn't linger too long, because I thought it might be distracting to Emily to see a guy out in the hall eavesdropping and wonder, "Why is Jason Alexander on campus, and why is he wearing a suit?") It really struck me just what a libertarian and Austrian-friendly outpost SJSU is.

I don't have any gossip I can report, except I will say that Jeff Hummel agrees with me that Gene Callahan's criticism of our Fed-as-counterfeiter argument was silly. So there.

You wish you were making that big Jenny Craig money like Costanza is now.

When I have no actual response to an argument, I find it sometimes works just to call it "silly" as well.
Bob, where do these nasty and (even worse) totally un-funny anonymous posters come from? I don't see why someone with your personality would attract drones like this.
Bob, It's a decent outpost for Austrian Economics. It's too bad we lost Benjamin Powell, to some east coast school. Unfortunately sorry to say that yours truly... a former graduate student from sjsu went on to betray my own beliefs...to work as an Economist for the BLS. As I was talking to Dr. Block about it...I said, "I suppose it could have been worse...Dr.Block...I could have been an economist at the FED.
Tom, I'm very attractive.
