A week of links

Links this week:

  1. If you read one thing this week, read this article by Enrico Spolaore and Romain Wacziarg: How Deep Are the Roots of Economic Development? (ungated version here). I’ll post in more detail on the article in a couple of weeks.
  2. Henry Harpending on health after the Neolithic revolution.
  3. Noah Smith provides a list of essential papers in behavioural finance.
  4. Cannabis and IQ.
  5. My newest working paper has just gone online: Population, Technological Progress and the Evolution of Innovative Potential. I’ll post about it sometime next week. [Post is now up here]
