Should There Be Compulsory Attendance for the Balan-Hanson Debate?
By Bryan Caplan
David Balan and Robin Hanson, two of the smartest voices on Overcoming Bias, are having a debate on Paternalism this Wednesday evening at GMU. The title: “Paternalistic Policy: Altruism or Arrogance?”
Given that this debate will resolve this important question for all time, I have to ask: Should everyone in the region be required to attend?
