Assorted links

1. Karl Smith on Russ Roberts on TGS.  Karl also has had some excellent posts on IS-LM and related matters, start here but scroll backwards through the blog.

2. When was the phrase “Great Depression” first used?  More from the extraordinary Barry Popik.

3. 1982 interview with Thomas Sargent.  And the Thomas Sargent academic family tree.  And Sargent’s (very short, and very good) graduation speech at Berkeley.  An excellent short overview of what economics has to contribute to human understanding.  Here is his Dad’s speech, from his Dad’s 90th birthday.

4. Carolyn Sargent’s guide to the art of Florence; she is related to Thomas.
