==> Tom Woods has had a bunch of interesting episodes lately at his podcast. You know, the one that has 50% fewer hosts and is 50% as cool.
==> Second only to his posts that transformed my understanding of government debt burdens, this is my favorite work by Nick Rowe.
==> Cliff Asness is really interesting; read his interview with Tyler Cowen.
==> Josiah Neeley linked me to this analysis, which (if correct) shows that actually the men have nothing to do with it: apparently the death rate is up for non-Hispanic white women younger than 52. Note that I have no idea if this guy is right, but he seems competent and honest.
==> Von Pepe sent me this panel discussion about the Chicago School.
==> Remember that time when RBC theorists said the Great Depression was caused by shocks to total factor productivity, and the Keynesians laughed at their “Great Vacation” explanation? Awwwwkward.
==> Gene Callahan is developing into an absolutely perfect crotchety old man.
