The Art and Question of Nepotism

October 6, 2014 With Adam Bellow

Publisher Adam Bellow, son of Saul, looked to his famous father to land his first job. My son did the same and that provides a good basis for a wide ranging discussion in 2005 of nepotism in our time and across history. Beyond the moral issue of should it be done are the sociological issues of: How often is it done? How is it well or poorly done? Is it a benefit or burden for the larger society? As we kick these matters around some surprises are bound to show up.
