A week of links

Links this week:

  1. From The Umlaut (worth adding to your feed) – Why Choosing to Make Less Money Is Easier Than Ever. The return of conspicuous leisure?
  2. A new book Forecast: What Physics, Meteorology, and the Natural Sciences Can Teach Us About Economics may be worth a look (HT: Diane Coyle).
  3. Should human genes be patented? I wonder how much of this debate will be surpassed by technological progress. Cheap genomes and the ability to upload to free or near free websites for analysis will make attempts to prevent unauthorised testing of a patented gene impossible.
  4. I’ve updated my economics and evolutionary biology reading list, including adding a couple more articles on the evolution of preferences and genoeconomics.
