Assorted links

1. Ted Gioia’s 100 best albums of 2013.  Ted understands the acoustical nature of music, and the creation of alternative sound worlds, better than any other music critic I read.  Someone constructed a playlist from Ted’s picks here.  And The Economist picks best books of the year.  It is the best “best books” list so far this year.

2. Does GPS interfere with our internal mental maps?

3. Can you build a political party around the moral superiority of eunuchs?

4. Phasing in minimum wage hikes.

5. The winning essays on the “Cowen vs. Mokyr” theme, I think they are very good.

6. Matt Zwolinski defends the guaranteed annual income idea.
