Those damned Berkeley mafia

Last week, a friend – a Berkeley alumni – sent a plea to a Berkeley alumni mailing list, asking senior Berkeley alumni to "defend" the almamater from recent attacks on the "Berkeley Mafia". To console, I sent him this link.

  • Haha.. it must be quite amusing (or annoying) for you Berkeley guys to have your almamater be blamed for the nation's ill. Even Yosef Ardi sometimes gets annoyed with this (see here, here, and here).

  • ;-) ;-) Some alumnis, Yosef Ardi included, take their almamater so seriously...

  • Beberapa tahun lalu saya pernah nemu buku yg udah cukup tua di library, yg nyeritain ttg gimana cara AS mentraining para arsitek ekonomi orba di Berkeley. Yah mungkin kalo ada yg nyalahin mafia berkeley ttg keterpurukan ekonomi Indonesia, yah mungkin ya karena itu:)

  • Babe, mungkin asyik juga sih kalau bisa berbagi judul bukunya. Jangan-jangan training-nya sekarang jadi norma di kebanyakan Fakultas Ekonomi modern di AS... ;-)

  • Iya, saya juga tertarik untuk baca bukunya. Ingin tahu secara definitif siapa, apa, Berkeley Mafia itu. Strukturnya seperti apa, siapa capo-famiglia-nya, consiglieri-nya, sotto-capo-nya. Jangan2 ada yang saya kenal...
