the association of university teachers, apparently, has called for a strike next tuesday... but it's a good thing that our lecturers are not planning to take part, having a respectable, even admirable commitment to teaching us because we've paid. yes. practising what you preach in economics 101.

having not had much experience of strikes, it's interesting to understand why people do it. it's an interesting clash between the marginal product way of pricing labour, and the "necessity" factor of pricing. in any case, lecturers are intelligent people who probably have taken a big pay cut anyway to do what they like so probably industrial action is not as effective. i don't think it's quite the same nearly though for other jobs.
