    PART-TIME faculty. Try getting tenure.

    Economics is a social *science*. Can we base future economic decisions on math?

      The tenured ones more so, of course, because they're seen as the obstacle (all that "faculty governance" stuff) impeding real business-inspired progress.

      Of course, part-time faculty (the ones who aren't highly compensating visiting "real-world experts" -- like Obama was at Chicago Law, not surprisingly) are treated miserably by universities, and tenured faculty haven't exactly been fearless in taking up their cause.

      Dogs from the street can have all the desirable qualities that one could want from pet dogs. Most adopted stray dogs are usually humble and exceptionally faithful to their owners as if they are grateful for this kindness. -- H.M. Bhumibol Adulyadej
