Few bits and pieces:
1. Scientific American on perverse incentives.
Chris Amade goes into detail on the perverse incentives created by the Great Moderation / Deregulation in financial services.
3. Brad DeLong doing what he does.
He’s not the first to investigate the intellectual emptiness of the modern US ‘movement’ conservatives, and he won’t be the last.
4. Noah Smith deals with Dean Baker.
Economic case for fluid labour markets, open immigration policies and why liberals really shouldn’t run away from themselves when they’re winning.
5. And finally: some dude with a yoyo.
