Markets in Everything

Yale-LogoWill Wilkinson sees Yale’s ban on faculty-student sex as an unwise distortion of the free market.

The ban will have a predictably “disparate impact,” and mostly put the kibosh on relationships between male faculty members and female undergraduate student[s].  .  .  . Moreover the rule is, in effect, a subsidy to male Yale undergrads. On the other hand, faculty-student sex just got hotter.

Lux et veritas, indeed.

    Puh-lease.

    Once again people are forgetting who’s paying who and why older men in a position of power should be kept on a leash.
