Keeping an Open Mind

It can be easy to be set in your ways. Pick a topic to write about, pick your stance on the issue, and then pick data to back your stance. That's the easy way to write. This article about Raghuram Rajan shows off his discipline:
He [Rajan] says he had planned to write about how financial developments during Mr. Greenspan's 18-year tenure made the world safer. But the more he looked, the less he believed that. In the end, with Mr. Greenspan watching from the audience, he argued that disaster might loom.
Easier said than done.
