Saturday assorted links

1. Which are over- and underrated dog breeds?

2. The newly unveiled painted portrait of Bernanke in the Fed.  And Clickhole explains Bitcoin (short video, funny).

3. Laser-cloaking device could help hide us from aliens.

4. I hadn’t known that Zika had its first recorded outbreak on Yap island, where they use stone discs for money.  NYT link, here is Wikipedia.

5. Interviewing Acemoglu about the Post Office.

6. Wikileaks on the IMF and Greece.  No huge revelations, but lots of egg on face, and a caution looking forward around the time of the Brexit vote.

7. Historian and economic historian William L. O’Neill has passed away.
