Is Richard Epstein the Smartest Man in America?

Steven Hayward thinks so:
Actually, at the risk of offending a lot of brilliant friends, can I just declare Epstein to be the smartest man in American and just get it over with?
This kind of endorsement makes me feel a little less crazy for thinking Epstein is a cut above the rest. Of course, I'd like to know just who Steven thinks is smarter outside of America.

  1. Well, he is certainly one of the wisest men on the internet, and probably in the nation as well. Smart makes you rich on Wall Street and maybe even gets you elected President; wise creates the foundations of Civilization. And if wisdom comes accompanied by wit, curiosity and restraint, as it surely does with Dr. Epstein, it is unreasonable to look for anything better.
