Quoted: Fraser, Rockmore, Blanchflower, Schwartz, and Flanagan



In recent days, the nation’s media, from the Chronicle of Higher Education to The Wall Street Journal, turned to Dartmouth for comment. Here’s what five professors had to say:

“This requires design work. There are no off-the-shelf solutions to building a hybrid vehicle,” says Thayer School of Engineering’s Douglas Fraser in a WMUR story about the Formula Hybrid Competition founded and run by Thayer. The event is held April 28 to May 1 at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Loudon, N.H.

“Novel doesn’t actually even get to it. It wouldn’t be crazy to say that it was unheard of,” says Professor Dan Rockmore in a Chronicle of Higher Education story about BASIC, the computer-programming language developed at Dartmouth 50 years ago.

“Telling me that hyperinflation is going to come is the dog that hasn’t barked,” says Professor David Blanchflower in a Wall Street Journal story about inflation.

“The question is, is there really any problem here to be treated?” says TDI’s Lisa Schwartz in a BBC story about treating “low T,” or low testosterone levels, in middle-aged men.

“We have to understand that bias is a problem every single one of us has to deal with,” says Professor Mary Flanagan in an interview with Polygon about designing video games that promote social change.
