Bainbridge on faculty hiring bias



Professor Bainbridge has a good new article explaining how, in his experience, faculties (particularly law faculties, with which he is obviously familiar) "discriminate" against conservative and libertarian job applicants. Relying on the economic rationale of "network effects," Bainbridge rejects both the conservative charges of intentional bias as well as the typical left-wing rationalizations (e.g., "conservatives are stupid," "liberals are better people"). "The real culprit is the law school hiring process." Interesting read.
