Introducing….The Symposium!

We here at NPI are proud to introduce a new feature to the blog. It’s called the “Symposium.” Basically, it will be a series of posts in which some of us debate a given topic and go back and forth on it. You see, brilliance is often amplified when great minds come together and disagree. As John Stuart Mill once said, “He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that.” Also, discord is fun. A lot of these debates will probably involve one of us defending an absurd premise, but we will always have a point. Because you never really know you’re right unless you’re confident someone else is wrong.

Our first symposium, coming shortly, will feature Josh and John debating the concept of anchoring. Brace yourselves…
