A week of links

Links this week:

  1. Ed Yong on Swarms.
  2. The New York Times on whether the decline of two-parent households has caused the decline in male incomes. It still astounds me that some academics can discuss this without mentioning selection effects.
  3. Greg Cochran on J.B.S. Haldane.
  4. A critical review by Miki Ben-Dor of Marlene Zuk’s Paleofantasy. On the flipside, Christina Warinner “Debunking the paleo diet“.
  5. Finally, the Cooperation and Conflict in the Family Conference (of which I am a co-organiser) has been announced. Bringing together economic and evolutionary thinkers, it is scheduled for 2-5 February 2014 in Sydney.
