Affirmative Action and Conservatives

An interesting post by Harvard economist Greg Mankiw. Professor Mankiw had headlines earlier this year for his proposal to impose a tax on height. While I'm not a big fan of that plan, he does raise a good point in a post of his blog today. He notes that is the theory behind affirmative action is to promote diversity (this is an assumption that can be debated), then that principle would also support assisting underrepresented right-wing academics. Being a right-wing organization at a school with few right-wing students or professors, I thought this might be an interesting topic to discuss. Hat tip to Above the Law, a legal gossip site run by former Yale FedSoc Chapter President David Lat.
