Monday assorted links

1. Albatross!

2. Do economic recoveries die of old age?  It doesn’t seem so.  And Tim Taylor comments and teaches us the word “paraedolia”: “looking at randomness and perceiving patterns that aren’t really there.”

3. The future of higher ed: a mentor for every student.

4. More evidence that negative interest rates aren’t working.  They are not just a reflection of bad conditions, the tax on intermediation seems positively harmful, and there are ways to run an expansionary monetary policy which don’t involve this tax.

5. “The schools’ proclivity to “do everything right” may be limiting students’ impulses toward the rebellion and inquisitiveness that could lead to greater skepticism and creativity.
