Assorted links

1. Interview with Saez (I find his views on elasticities somewhat surprising, actually).

2. Why conspiracy theories persist in Pakistan (they are often true).

3. There is no great stagnation.

4. The largest gathering of humanity in the world, the six-week pop-up city, and the accompanying theory of search, plus one possible way of cutting unwanted ties.  All in one story.  India too.

5. Dennis Rodman in North Korea, and oddly the game ended in a tie.

6. Those Americans who will tell pollsters they approve of Congress, excellent piece, one excerpt: “Other answers were simpler. Clyda Mellett of Tennessee, who described Medicare as her top political interest, offered an unqualified thumbs-up. “I think they’re doing great,” she said.”
