A long pondered but only lately realized blog about economics, politics, evaluation, econometrics, Ann Arbor, academia, college football and whatever else comes to mind.

Banning bottled water at UM
The student government at Michigan is lobbying the university to ban bottled water from campus. You know, if the students just didn't buy any bottled water, it would disappear pretty quickly without any political action at all. Voting with dollars is better, in so many ways, than voting with ballots, not least because voting with dollars means that the outcome takes account of the views of those too busy, or too wise, to get involved in politics.
