Assorted Links

January 10, 2013

1. Turns out, moderately overweight people live longer than the thin, and obese people spend less on healthcare than the thin. Where are your externalities now, progressives? Time to start subsidizing big macs and outlawing tofu?

2. Watson learns to curse

3. Becker on the war on drugs. It’s a good, albeit not particularly noteworthy article, but you know that something has changed when all the serious thoughtful people are lining up on one side of the issue and writing op eds in staid serious forums like the WSJ.

4. What analysts don’t get about the Fed. A bit wonkish, but only counter-intuitive if you’ve spent far too long with NK models.
