1. Bad arguments to take in Syrian refugees.
2. 4 things universities should do to cut costs. I don’t get the obsession with peer reviewed journals that many in academia have. All the good discussion is on blogs anyway. Maybe the top 5-10 journals are still important, but that’s about it. Administrative costs can be cut, sure, but they are overblown.
3. Vox on Russia and Turkey
Personally, I think if Erdogan wants to pick a fight with the Russians, that’s his biz. NATO or not, he started this thing, so he should be on his own.
4. Potential growth from micro-reforms.
