大竹文雄：市場競争のメリット 。Very good reading. He questions the content of senior high school education. Well, I wonder if he has checked the influence of classes of departments of economics at university in Japan on Japanese students. Departments of economics all over Japan produce thousands of supposed economics-literate who have supposedly studied economics, that is, understood the virtue of competition. If they don't, why do we need department of economics? Can 4 years of focused education wash the brain? If not, why not? It is easy to examine. When students enter the university, they answer questionnaire. When the same students graduate, they answer the same questionnaire. Ask law deparment as a control group. When you compare the results by difference-in-difference, you get your department's performance. Then, you can roughly guess-timate the effect of 4 years of education of the best economics department in Japan. Looking forward to the result in 4 years.
