Sunday assorted links

1. What college should be: extreme study abroad (NYT).

2. Double proof — no triple proof — that Washington, D.C. is a provincial town.

3. Adam Ozimek on whether Uber’s service will get worse.  Here Uber delivers kittens, for a “snuggle fee.”  Here is Zack Kanter making breathless claims, albeit with documentation but I see larger barriers to change.

4. Are Japan’s Buddhist temples going broke?

5. Brian Eno’s Music for Airports played live…finally…in an airport.  Other airports are now expressing interest.

6. Brad DeLong on the natural rate of interest.  On the negative real rates point, I think VIX is far too low to justify his argument.  And here is Miles Kimball, defending different notions of the natural rate of interest.
