5. Coase in the news.
6. House form follows tax laws, in New Orleans.
7. Are polled people more candid when they talk to robots?
“wave of evictions and court actions against Gypsies and Irish Travellers which they say are threatening to extinguish a whole way of life.”
I don’t think there would be losers if their way of life would be extinguished.
That’s not the culture that is North Korean, that’s the *government* that is North Korean.

Sure hope Philip Larkin is dealing with folks who understand that libraries are built to special building codes to support the weight….
Paper is incredibly heavy, and normal buildings, including commercial buildings, are not constructed to support the weight of shelves of books. Just ask a librarian, especially a law librarian.
While I support the Roma way of life, i do think we need a distinction between the Roma people and the “travellers” we get in England. They are, by experience, bullies and/or criminals and maintain their temporary lodgings through making local people feel threatened by them. Then they leave, and the local council have to clear up land (which prior to arrival was in good condition) as they haven’t the politeness to maintain the land they live on.
As an economist, i put this down to incentives. with no connection to the local land, why maintain it or foster working relationships with pre-existing tenants?
Though I am not unsympathetic, I found the “classical liberal approach to bioethics” somewhat disappointing. A fundamental question has to be answered: Who is going to pay for all this stuff?
