Assorted Links

June 15, 2013

1. Krugman on Luddism. Obviously his conclusions are a bit leftist for me, but as skills become harder to get and are quickly rendered obsolete, Luddism becomes a bigger and bigger problem.

2. An attempt to reconcile fiscal and monetary approaches to macro stabilization. I don’t personally think a hard theoretical line between “fiscal” and “monetary” policy is either useful or necessary. Helicopter drops are quite useful for modifying inflation expectations.

The Economist comments.

3. Why Germans supported Hitler. A fascinating question, which is probably understudied.

4, The latest Econtalk with Bruce Schneiner is quite good.
