Lunch with John Graham
I'm just back from lunch with John Graham, Dean of the School of Public and Environmental Affairs at IU, and former head of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs in the Bush Administration Office of Management and Budget. One of the most intellectually stimulating lunches I've had in some time. We talked a lot about problems of climate policy and the methodology of benefit-cost analysis. John is scary smart, and I learned a lot from him over lunch. I was somewhat surprised to find that we seem to agree more than we disagree on policy issues.
