So this is (deeply) awkward.

Peter Linneman has some interesting theories about birth rates in China, which he strangely had no qualms about expressing out loud, to a room full of people with ears.

...real estate mogul [Sam Zell] was the keynote speaker at a real estate conference Wednesday, where his skepticism on the state of the commercial real estate market was overshadowed by protesters, racist comments and a disgruntled audience member. Zell was being interviewed by Peter Linneman, a principal at real estate consulting firm Linneman Associates and an emeritus professor at the Wharton School. The two were talking about the abolishment of the one-child law in China, agreeing that “nothing happened” after the law changed. Linneman twice implied that perhaps people don’t want to have sex with Chinese men. He said: “Look at Chinese men, that may be your explanation.” Zell replied that this was another issue entirely. “That’s too heavy for me,” he said.

Business School Applicants Having None Of This "Show Us You Can Speak Without Paying A Consultant $500 To Show You How" Crap

After years of receiving scripted answers to questions from would-be business school students re: why they want to go to Harvard/Wharton/Stanford/Sloan or what they think of a company's earnings potential or where they see themselves in five to ten years or what they ate for breakfast, admissions officers have lately been taking a new tack in an attempt to see the "real" side of applicants. Hoping to get a little "unrehearsed honesty" and insight into who these people really are, prospective students are being asked to submit "reflections" ("a short, off-the-cut note that must be submitted within 24 hours of an admissions interview") and take part in "team-based discussions," for which they're told to "relax, be genuine," not worry about giving the "right" answer, and just say what they really think, rather than what a coach told them to say they think. Unfortunately, Harvard and Wharton officials apparently have no idea who they're dealing with here. You can't make future b-school students relax and be genuine! You can't! You won't!
