I envy Jane Galt
It's true, I have committed one of the seven deadly sins in thinking about Ms. Megan McArdle -- and it's not even one of the interesting sins.
No, I am envious of her because she wrote this post, which contains this paragraph:
I've had a taste of both academia and investment banking. The dominance hierarchy of banking is so strong that if you could get the bankers out of their pinstripes for an hour, you could have filmed your average pitch meeting for the Discovery Channel. Yet when it comes to hyper-obsession with invisibly fine status distinctions, no banker could hold a candle to the average academic--or journalist, for that matter.Read the whole thing. posted by Dan on 09.06.06 at 10:27 PM
Miz Galt is simply babelicious. Can't argue with that.
But having delved briefly into the matriz of blogs on this one topics (a rabbithole if ever there was one) I walk away thinking: don't all those people have jobs? Is America sooo competitive and efficient that people can spend that much time on one sillyass topic and still out-produce the Europeans, Chinese, and Singaporeans?
