British researchers Patrick Sharman and Alatair J. Wilson argue that racehorses are indeed getting faster. (Their research on racehorse speeds is available in this scientific paper, the source of the table appearing below. By the way, our mentor Jorge Cordova would have loved this paper!) On a related note, notice the pdf version of Sharman & Wilson’s racehorse paper is only four and one-half pages long, including footnotes. Law review articles, by contrast, tend to be getting longer and more tedious to read–with some notable exceptions. So, why can’t law review articles–whether they be doctrinal, empirical, or theoretical–be more concise and to the point? (Hat tip: Tyler Cowen.)
