Stop looking at me swan

Awesome takedown of this poorly written paid advertisement by WSJ on Universa returns:

And they (Empirica, Universa, Taleb, etc) seem to do this often:

Apparently for 2-5k, you too can be an ‘amazing’ or ‘smartest guy I know’ in the WSJ!

More Benefits Instead of Wages

Nice Chart!
Nice Chart!

 

Interesting points made in this article, increasing benefits rather then wage. Corporate margins would come in, would hopefully reduce government spending. I think healthcare costs are artificially high due to regulation and government intervention in the first place. This would reduce cost of labor and do good things for the job market IMO..
