    Ooo, I love to make the point that Universities are dysfunctional mostly because the ancient institutional form is The Glory and Godliness of Rent Seeking.

    Graham, no video to my knowledge, but hopefully some of the materials will be circulated — and of course I’ll blog the juicy bits.

    Nice to know that students always found out lectures boring; I notice the familar sleeper, a bored student, and I think I also spot someone on the cell phone under the table (but may simply be my projection)…the people arguing in the back corner are also normal (we know they are not arguing about anything relevant to the lecture)…yup, things are pretty much the same..
