This video is essentially a vlog version of something I wrote for this website a few weeks ago.
In that blog I talk about conventional wisdom and how it’s sometimes obviously right, but also how sometimes it’s surprisingly wrong. Because what’s generally accepted often turns out to be wrong, I try to pay attention whenever dissenting ideas start brewing up. (Also just because everyone loves a good conspiracy).
Disputing the gender pay gap is an example of a very common disagreement with the conventional wisdom about how our society operates, but it seems these contrarians haven’t done their research.
