More Assorted Links

Austin Frakt reviews Modern Principles: Macroeconomics.  Austin's blog, The Incidental Economist, covers game theory, investment planning and health economics among other topics.

Here is an updated version of my paper Life Savings Incentives: Consequences, Costs and Solutions to the Organ Shortage.  Did you know that it is legal to offer compensation for donating a whole body (e.g. for research purposes) but not legal to compensate an organ donor to save a life?  Crazy.  Alvin Roth links to a survey of transplant surgeons indicating increasing support for legalizing some forms of compensation (Roth also links to a recent radio interview with yours truly.)

House built from Lego, yes really.  


Thanks for a great blog. Just wanted to let you know that the link "About Cowen & Tabarrok" on is not working properly.

I've always wondered what weather-related expansion and contraction would do to a structure made from snap-together components. It seems more effective than nails and mortar. Lego blocks seem too small for making this work well, but it's an interesting idea on a bigger scale, if it can handle big swings of temperature.

It certainly makes renovation a snap.
