Off to Argentina:

Fleeing from the hordes of rampaging federal judges angered by my suggestion that their salaries don't need to be raised, I am leaving for Argentina on Sunday. Blogging will be light (and possibly nonexistent) for the next 2 weeks.

However, for South American VC readers (perhaps there are at least a few!), I will be speaking at the Torcuato di Tella University law school in Buenos Aires on May 16 (5 PM) on judicial power and democracy and at the Latin American and Carribean Law and Economics Conference on May 19 (same location, 10:20 AM) on rational political ignorance. All are welcome to come! My presentations will be in English. The story of my academic career is that I only get invited to speak in those foreign countries where I don't know the local language.
