Me on Caveat Lector

You can see me being an economics boor on Caveat Lector. I'll point out though that I'm just guessing about the salaries. It seems most likely, though, based on what I know about public sector work in general. Also I'd add that salaries aren't the only factor to take into account. Some jobs are more enjoyable than others for a whole host of reasons, and that will affect what salaries people are willing to accept for the work. Obviously that's a whole lot harder to measure than salaries, and I have no idea whether or how the public sector might differ from the private sector there.
