    • Prof Grace   Prof. Martin Grace seems too smart to be so wrong about antitrust law and the McCarran-Ferguson Act.  Is this a studied ignorance?  No objective antitrust expert believes antitrust would prevent insurers from sharing loss data.  (See my extensive Comments here.)

      • Which reminds me: why do so many “right-minded” law professors have no Comment function on their weblogs?  For the same reason they fight so many straw men?  

    • Update (Aug. 25, 2004): Prof. Grace has a graceful reply, agreeing with my antitrust analysis, at his weblog today, headlined Studied Ignorance, and dubbing f/k/a  his “first critic!”   This raises a bigger question: How can someone so [er] “eminent” avoid criticism for so long (besides turning off Comments)?   Maybe the Strawmen have a theory.  See additional explanatory comments on data collection and antitrust by me here and there.

    • Update II (Aug. 26, 2004):  This tri-alogue (Wallace, Grace and Giacalone — with a dash of Olson and Copland) continued today, with Wallace and Grace shifting their arguments a bit, but still being outflanked by Giacalone (really).  Check out the new Comments here and here.  Giacalone accuses Grace of FAFOFA — Falsely Accusing Foes Of False Accusations.
