When I see a "problem" requiring quotas, or see waiting lists like those for kidney transplants, I know we have a pricing problem.
Steve Sailer writes, "Nationally, of course, the massive problem is that we're running out of white kids to uplift NAM [Non-Asian Minority] kids". If there is a shortage, we must raise the price! As Milton Friedman said about 50 years ago, "We economists don't know much. But we do know two things. If you want more of something, subsidize it. If you want less of something, penalize it".
Now my plan: pay white kids to go to school with NAM kids! What will the market clearing price be? $5,000 per kid year? $10,000 per kid year? $20,000? At some price, white kids will go to school with NAM kids. Make these stipends tax free.
Have the Ivy League, Stanford, MIT and such treat these kids' applications as if they were NAMs. Now any white kid who wants to go to Princeton will be admitted if he gets say 1350 on today's SAT and finishes in the top 2% of his predominantly NAM school. Princeton will treat the 1350 as a 1600!
Yes, we can fix this.
I first suggested paying white kids to go to school with NAM kids, drum roll please, in 1966! Full disclosure: I figured since I was attending a majority NAM school myself, I should get paid for it. Like combat pay in the military.
