Congratulations to Clare DiSalvo

Actually I should be congratulating the University of Minnesota, who along with every other top public policy program in the country wanted her as an MPP graduate student for the coming fall. I had Clare as a student in my principles of microeconomics last summer, where she was the best student I ever had. Sharp, inquisitive, and challenging, Clare pushed me to be on top of my form for every class I taught. Already holding a Bachelor’s Degree in Religious Studies from Yale, she took several economics and statistics courses while she applied to all the top public policy schools. She hopes to pursue a career in the nonprofit sector advocating policy at the state and local levels of government.

For classical liberals such as myself, who so often bemoan the absurd Hollywood stereotype of the policy maker or bureaucrat who is selfless and caring, Clare is a fresh reminder that occasionally these people do actually exist. She cares a lot about the big important topics facing society, and while she may not agree with you she will always keep an open mind during a rational discussion.

Congratulations and best wishes to Clare.

It's not that these people don't exist but rather than the political system has antibodies for them.

Not to be pessimistic or anything, but let's check back in 10 years. :-(
