Meet Your Newest Guest Bloggers

More

Thanks to Garrett Jones and Dave Ryan for a great two weeks of blogging. Today we have three new, brilliant bloggers for you:

Gabriel Rossman is a sociology professor at UCLA whose work focuses on mass media and the diffusion of ideas. I had the honor of blurbing his forthcoming book, which I hope he'll blog about.

Jim Manzi is an entrepreneur, writer, and all-around genius whose fantastic new book, Uncontrolled, covers the use of randomized controlled trials in discovering the truth -- especially, the truth about public policy.

Scott Winship of the Brookings Institution is one of my favorite scholars on the topic of income inequality and income mobility.  His work has inflected my opinions on the subject, and hopefully, will influence yours as well.

Be nice to them. I miss you all.
