Reasonable people can disagree about what to do about this problem. Some advocate 401(k) style approaches while others favor traditional pensions but with some tweaks. And there are hybrid options like “cash balance” plans that have aspects of both of those approaches. The reality is that there are trade-offs with every approach and it’s possible to design lousy pensions and good 401(k)s and vice versa. What we shouldn’t disagree about, however, is that this conversation is too important not to be informed by the best data and honest straightforward analysis of what it means and what those trade-offs and choices are.
Rick Hess wants the federal government to withhold research funding from colleges that trample free speech. Seems like one can agree that the speech situation on campus is a little out of control right now in some places, but also question whether this is a workable or desirable solution. Workable because of the range of institutions and their varying free speech obligations as well as the inherent messiness of the issue.

Seems like a better solution is for colleges to fix this through their own leadership?
