is a former McKinsey consultant, a co-founder of a successful software company, and currently a student at the Yale Law School. He is not, never has been, and never will be a member of the Yale Law Journal. However, on December 11, 2009, he was named Grand Heresiarch of the Ancient, Hermetic, and Occult Order of the Shrill by Brad DeLong. He is a co-founder of The Baseline Scenario.
Since leaving the business world, James’s only significant income has been from 13 Bankers. He very occasionally gives paid presentations to private firms or not-for-profit organizations. He is a significant shareholder (though not a 5 percent shareholder, for you lawyers out there) of Guidewire Software. Otherwise, his family’s investments are entirely in cash and broadly diversified mutual funds, mainly index funds and mainly at Vanguard.
