Persuading Tyler Cowen
By Bryan Caplan
Tyler’s said this before, but it still flabbergasts me:
It’s funny how Bryan thinks he can cite my actions as evidence against the correct belief. That’s absurd; for instance I also don’t act as if determinism is true, but citing that doesn’t settle the matter.
The best way to persuade people is normally to find a mutually acceptable starting point. How do you persuade a person who scoffs at the place where he starts?
