    Using county-level data, I spatially and temporally interpolated presidential vote returns for the two major party candidates in each election from 1920-2008. The result illuminates the sometimes gradual, sometimes rapid change in the geographic basis of presidential partisanship. A detailed description can be found at http://goo.gl/alfsQ.

      What motivates people to be unfair has long been explained by a theory called Personalysis. Some people just wanna hate, when they should care instead. But that's what they learn through evolution till they have a different view on their world instead in respect of how to function amidst human beings. There's a better way forward, free of such discrimination against a better spirit.

                My primary goal in this presentation is to stimulate thought about the motives behind the JFK assassination, particularly those related to his Vietnam withdrawal policy. My secondary goal is to stimulate thought about evidence suggesting that select senior military and/or Administration officials may have had foreknowledge of the plot to assassinate the 35th President of the United States.

                      Transcript of the Second Session can be freely downloaded here: http://ssrn.com/abstract=2321912 [Note: There is a 40 second time delay (while the audio is running properly) before the video kicks in! Please be patient!] In 1968, Gary Becker published a seminal article titled “Crime and Punishment: An Economic Approach” in the Journal of Political Economy, in which he set forth the contours of an economic perspective on the field of criminal law and punishment. Only a few years later, in his lectures on The Birth of Biopolitics at the Collège de France on March 21, 1979, Michel Foucault analyzed Gary Becker’s article in relationship to his own writings. This seminar, featuring Gary Becker, François Ewald and Bernard Harcourt, seeks to engage the discursive repercussions of this textual exchange and the impact Becker's work made on Foucault's work, including his well-known work Discipline and Punish, published in 1975. The relevant texts can be accessed here: Becker's 1968 paper: http://bit.ly/17W2Yvo Foucault's lecture: http://bit.ly/11MB4dB This is the second conversation between Becker, Ewald, and Harcourt. The transcript is forthcoming and will be available soon. You can view the video of the first conversation on American Neoliberalism here: https://vimeo.com/43984248.
