1. An oldie but goodie: let’s not forget Christina Romer’s classic paper on spurious volatility in the historical data (pdf).  This is with reference to recent writings from Eichengreen and Roubini.  I don’t favor a gold standard but criticisms should start with this paper.

2. Critical review of the new MLK memorial.

3. What do anesthetics do?

4. Predictions by Pettis, mostly correct I think, in any case worth a read.

5. Some of Alan Krueger’s academic work.
