Pitgoats have company: Petlambs

Pitgoats: People In The Grip of a Theory. Petlambs: People Eager To Let Authority Mandate Belief

Allen Stairs, the professor who came up with Pitgoats (People In The Grip Of A Theory), comments on the post about a different kind of person altogether. He writes:

“PETLAMBs: People Eager To Let Authority Mandate Belief. Not quite as snappy an acronym, but just as big a problem. Simply believing the pitgoats is no improvement over being one. In fact, it’s probably worse: at least pitgoats are trying to think.”

Before it's here, it's on the Bloomberg Terminal.
