  •  I guess I am "whimsy impaired" (0+ / 0-)

    One of my mentors was a disciple of Posner's economic theory of the law.  His respect for the judge rubbed off on me.  I am envious that you had the opportunity to have him as a professor.

    But please don't think I am a Posner sycophant.  Just because he is a great legal mind doesn't mean he can't be wrong (in my view).

      this study is a good start, but the way it's structured lends itself to a superficial view of being pro-business.  Unless you think judges make purely political decisions about whether businesses should win or lose (and Posner himself certainly does not do this in his day job), what it means to be pro-business is an interesting conceptual question.

      Difficult, difficult, lemon difficult.
