Update on Scott Sumner Showdown

Economics, Federal Reserve, Market Monetarism, Shameless Self-Promotion 5 Comments

Sorry for not mentioning this sooner, but here’s an update: At my request, Scott and I have postponed our debate that was originally scheduled (I think) for January. The reason is simple: I got bogged down with “day job” stuff and couldn’t prepare. I think for sure if I had debated Scott in January, it would have been at best a draw and he might have beaten me.

Before you go judging the true strengths of our positions or who is the good guy vs. villain, just remember this.

    Don’t concede anything, Bob. One of Christopher Hitchens’ most effective tactics was never to concede. It might have been a draw, but he wouldn’t have won.

      Joe, Christopher Hitchens is not one of my role models. Superman >> Hitchens.

    So, you have no estimate of when the debate will be now?

    Hopefully — this isn’t Kevin Smith’s Superman http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vgYhLIThTvk
