My Contigency Plan
By Bryan Caplan
After this morning’s lecture on the life cycle model, I explained to my students that I’m never going to retire. Why would I give up a decent fraction of my income and most of my social network, when a professor’s only observable responsibility is teaching 6 hours of class 30 weeks a year?
One sharp student shot back: “What if you get Alzheimer’s?”
Good question. My answer:
“I’ll teach intro.”
