Rantings and tirades of a frustrated economist.
I've heard of coal burning gay men,But this is ridiculous!
Honestly, the folks cheering this as some sort of revealing tidbit about academia are simply showing how little they know. There are journals and journals. These guys tried to get this thing put in all kinds of reputable journals -- and _failed_. Repeatedly. So they submitted to a pay-for-play paper mill journal, which, sure, will publish anything. Indeed, academic journals have been filled with complaints about such things. But what it shows you isn't that the system doesn't work, it's that the system is working pretty well, at least in this one case.
