What I find most amusing about Bryan Caplan’s recent blog post about Ron Paul is that it wouldn’t surprise me if he had no idea just how condescending it is. Anyway, try this part:
Will Paul’s legacy be any more lasting than, say, H. Ross Perot’s? Doherty’s convinced that it will be. I’m still unsure…
Oh. My. Gosh.
You name the terms Bryan and I’m in like Flynn, and I’ll put up $400 to your $100. I propose that we wait until both of them have been dead for at least a year, and then we look at (say) book sales or google searches or (say) thousands of young people who hold memorial services for the guy. Like I say, you think about it and spell out the objective metric(s) and assuming no funny stuff I’m in.
