A week of links

Links this week:

  1. Robert Kurzban reports on a very cool dictator game experiment. Do people only give money in experimental conditions?
  2. Nicholas Gruen digs up a nice Alfred Marshall quote.
  3. Peter Turchin calls on cultural group selection to explain the transition to farming. Or maybe it’s because “people like to own stuff“.
  4. Noah Millman on Jason Richwine. And another take-down of the paper suggesting the Victorians were smarter than us.
  5. The French fertility transition.
