Implied Dissent

Tuesday, August 29, 2006


Gladwell puts up a pretty damn weak defense of his depenency ratio article here. Much of it is in response to Jane Galt's criticisms. Jane responds to the response here. I think she's a bit too kind, but I have much more of an interest in seeing them feud in public than she does. I think his response, though, is basically a case of him trying to subtly distance himself from his article by claiming 'it is just showing us what two researchers think, and gee, isn't that interesting what they think?' and not his own opinions and own analysis.
