We Already Know They Don’t Teach Economics at Harvard Law School

But you might think they’d require an introductory course in logic, because Dwayne Lester shows how invalid fallacies are the only arguments made in favor of Obama’s “Buffett Rule” requiring tax increases on the rich.

    They don’t teach business or economics or logic and I see little evidence they teach law maybe philosophy?

    Harumph.  Old Dr. Asimov was right-basic symbolic logic is a much neglected field of human study.  Best course I took at the U of MN.

    When I got my Bachelor’s in IS, Intro to Logic was one of the first courses they required. When I went back for my Master’s ~10 years later, it wasn’t in the syllabus. While I was discussing with the Dean of the Business School some major boneheadery, I endeared myself to him by observing that I understood the decision to drop it, since most of his professors couldn’t pass it themselves.

    Why, yes, I am a cynical old misanthrope. What was the first clue?
