Keenan and the LIBOR scandal
Aug 10, 2012
Bishop Hill in Climate: Sceptics, Economics, Ethics

A few days ago readers were discussing the apparently inability of anyone in the UK establishment to bring anyone to book for any misdemeanour whatsoever. In that vein, Doug Keenan's recent article in the FT seems rather pertinent. Although it's somewhat off-topic for this blog, covering the issues surrounding the recent LIBOR-fixing scandal, the themes of willful ignoring of evidence that might lead the truth being uncovered are obvious. The involvement of the former head of the UK's Committee on Climate Change, Lord Turner, only adds spice.
