(January 11, 2007) No More Dr. Nice Guy by Duane Cobb Management professor Stephen Bushardt once remarked to
a then-CBA colleague that "if you don't like George Carter, then there's something wrong with you." That was years
ago, in the time just after Carter resigned as chair of the economics department in the late 1990s. Since hearing of this
statement back in those days . a statement that has become conventional CBA wisdom over the years . I have thought
little about it. However, events of the past few weeks and months that have been reported by this website have me
thinking about that statement again.

by honesty and truth when it comes to the evaluation of the faculty in his department.
