Eldar Shafir, editor, The Behavioral Foundations of Public Policy.

Ray Fisman and Tim Sullivan, The Org: The Underlying Logic of the Office.

Daniel C. Dennett, Intuition Pumps and Other Tools for Thinking.

All three would appear to be of interest; note that the latter is due out May 6.

And here is Rino Which Eats World’s Various Dishes (video).

At first I’d read the last link as ” RHINO Which Eats World’s Various Dishes”. I would have found that more interesting, or at least amusing, than the actual link, I think.

I would have found it more amusing if it were “FCINO Which Eats World’s Various Dishes”.

Good links! Honestly, where do you find the time to read all this?

Can I throw something else on your pile? Have you posted about George Saunders before? He has a new collection of short stories out:

And here’s a long and wonderful article from earlier this year:

One trick pony, homie. Read 400lb CEO and Isabelle from his first collection and move on.
