Mark J Perry

Mr. Perry writes one of my favorite blogs on the interwebs. he manages to use few words to define his thoughts clearly. he also has a frequent, marvelous habit of breaking down other stories or topics into little summaries at the end of his posts. his is what my blog should be but will never achieve.


  1. I think he pulled some bait-and-switch, though his reasoning about central planning is still valid, IMO.

    It doesn't really matter whether a 52-card deck's arrangement will have come up ever before in history. What matters is whether the 4 hands dealt from those 52-cards have ever been dealt before. And I'd say in that case, yes, they have come up before.

    There are a LOT of aggregating factors in the real world, which tends to simplify things in a lot of cases.

  2. I just went to his first post for today (5/21) and had to leave the site. It's about how the wage gap between men and women can be explained by women's "choices" due to their "societal roles." So I don't think he's going to be my favorite blogger.
