Hughesair (Inflection Point)

Retired physician and air taxi operator, science writer and part time assistant professor, these editorials cover a wide range of topics. Mostly non political, mostly true, I write more from experience than from research and more from science than convention. Subjects cover medicine, Alaska aviation, economics, technology and an occasional book review. The Floatplane book is out there. I am currently working on Hippocrates a History of Medicine and Globalism. Enjoy!

A Tribute to Professor John Christopher Ise

1885-1969, JD Kansas, Masters and PhD Harvard, past president American Economics Association. An agrarian economist, Sod and Stubble, KU professor 1920, lauded as the hardest and smartest professor on the hill by student campus consensus. 

Phrases like: allocation, marginal propensity, diminishing return. Factors of production: land, labor, capital, entrepreneurial ability, cheap, abundant sustainable resource and elasticity of demand.
The American Way 1955

Professor Ise was famously contrarian. Without my all to brief a time as his student, this book would not be possible.
