We were with him before he wasn't cool
We wonder if the administration at MIT will pass over the ethical lapses of star economist Jonathan Gruber. Taking consulting fees under false premises, say.
Though we think he told the truth to his audiences when he wasn't under oath. Do they strop Occam's Razor in Cambridge, Mass? Because the simplest explanation, that fits all the facts, for his numerous candid remarks prior to becoming a You Tube sensation, is that he was truthfully describing both the political calculations behind the language of Obamacare, and the incentives in sections 1311 and 1321.
Yesterday, under oath, he wasn't. Is MIT down with that?
