Gary North demonstrates the principle of “publish or perish”

In academic circles, there’s the principle of “publish or perish,” meaning that academics have to regularly publish scholarly articles in order to keep their jobs, whether or not they are quality articles, and that, by implication, quantity is often more important than quality.
Austrian School economist, Dr. Gary North, demonstrates this principle.
His December 28, 2012 LewRockwell.com article, Retired Couple Turn Into World Traveling Nomads, is only 158 words, and looks like the work of a fifth-grader. Here is a sample of his “high-quality” writing:
“I like my lifestyle. I spend most of my time in my basement office. I write. I read. I don’t go anywhere.
I would pay a lot of money not to travel. Fortunately, I don’t have to. I get to stay home for free.
My view of travel is simple: if you want to see the world, rent travel videos. Or watch YouTube.
