Sunday assorted links

1. Will not oppose release of ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ markets in everything Rs 5 crore to the Army relief fund.

2. William G. Bowen once rescued a woman from a pond full of alligators (NYT).  And ranking colleges by viewpoint diversity, Princeton does pretty well, GMU better yet.

3. Dani Rodrik on when a trade agreement undermines democratic principles or not.  Given super-majorities and status quo bias, I fear his standard suggests that most policies and regulations of any kind undermine democratic principles.

4. America is fighting five wars and no one wants to talk about it.

5. “When you talk about Slow Food, you talk about the normal life of a common person in Macedonia.”  And Wapo vs. Michelin.

6. Perhaps Parliamentary consent is needed after all.
