Book/Article Reviews

Here, Russ Roberts finds MacLean purposefully removed lines from Cowen in order to stick him with saying the opposite of what he in fact said.

Here, Christopher Fleming finds she did the same to James Buchanan.

And here Phil Magness finds her inventing a connection between James Buchanan and a bunch of racist segregationist.

Expect to see more of this soon. Christ, I understand the government wants to buy itself an apologist for corporatism, but you’d think for $50,000 it could get someone better.

Imagine if an undergraduate read the following text:

Jason Brennan: “Calhoun asserts that racism is not wrong. But I, Jason Brennan, disagree with Calhoun.”

Now suppose the undergraduate wrote this in an essay:

“Jason Brennan writes, and I quote, ‘….racism is not wrong.'”

That’s what MacLean is doing, over and over again. She is either grossly incompetent or a straight up liar.
