Assorted Links

July 24, 2013

1. What blogs have changed your mind? A good exercise to do from time to time is to come up with examples of when you’ve changed your mind. “An open mind is like a fortress with its gates unbarred and unguarded.”

2. Pessimism on China. You can only get so far by devaluing your currency, although there are many other reforms China could undertake.

3. An interesting article on drones. Although I disagree with much of what is going on with America’s drone policy in particular, in general drones have the advantage of pushing warfare away from mass slaughter and toward targetted assassination of specific individuals, which will probably result in an overall decrease in violence.

4. Sen vs. Bhagwati.

5. You are not an artisan. On automation and craftmanship.
