Political Scientists elected to NAS

Just in, (via a tweet from APSA) Larry Bartels and James Fearon have been elected to the National Academy of Sciences. Obviously, we have particular reason to be pleased – both are occasional contributors to the Monkey Cage (this correlation is emphatically not causation). Warm congratulations to both.

    Don’t be too hasty to dismiss the causal story.

      They called us at Monkey Cage HQ last week and told us that we were getting two slots this year. We decided to vote in Larry and Jim.
