- We are fortunate to have their shoulders to stand on. I find vast amounts of Elmendorf-era CBO research results to be interesting and rock-solid reliable. The plain fact is that my books and my University of Chicago lectures highlight such CBO material. I would be handicapped without it.
- Elmendorf-era CBO updates as research progresses, without being gullible. Is there any other DC institution in that category?
Later when I have more time I will elaborate and document these points, and explain why the detractors are confusing the forest with the trees.
