Summary:
Prof. Rowena Ball teaches a course on indigenous mathematics at Australian National University. Prof. Caroline Fohlin, an economics professor at Emory University, is arrested for being assaulted by rioting police. Prof. Tim Garrett questions the units of measurement in aggregate production functions. Aggregate production functions are not laws of nature, and those not in a broken discipline should not be thrown by questions about units of measurement. Maybe some production functions make sense as limit cases of linear combinations of Leontief production functions. Daniel Kahneman has died. Deirde McCloskey asserts, without cogent argument, that the labor theory of value is wrong. In what units do you imagine the marginal product of capital is measured? Branko Milanović
