The debate on the constitutionality of President Arroyo’s residual power to appoint the next Chief Justice (CJ) days before she relinquishes power got hotter yesterday after a former Justice secretary said the Judicial and Bar Council (JBC) cannot stop Arroyo from appointing the Supreme Court head even if it withholds a shortlist of candidates but members of the high tribunal can.

Oftentimes undergraduates find that they can learn more about the subject if they simply read a well-written basic textbook authored by an authority on the subject. They tend to believe, in such a situation, that they will fare just as well reading the book as attending classes on the subject.

A case in point is Economics, which was written in the early 1950s by Paul Samuelson, a professor of economics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), whose economics department he helped build into arguably the best in the US academic firmament.
