A week of links

Links this week:

  1. A good profile of Joe Henrich and WEIRD people.
  2. Nassim Taleb and Daniel Kahneman discuss antifragility.
  3. A gene for cooperation in response to punishment.
  4. I’ve uploaded an updated version of my working paper Conspicuous Consumption, Sexual Selection and Economic Growth. There are no earth-shattering changes, but we’ve simplified the second model and generally sharpened it up.

Comments, thoughts, suggestions?
