Thursday assorted links

1. The long-term effects of slavery on inequality in Brazil.

2. David Geffen criticizes other philanthropists for not supporting his opening renovation gift to the NY Philharmonic (NYT).  Does the new hall really need to cost $500 million or maybe more?  What exactly has gone wrong here?

3. Is it unrealistic to expect undergraduates to think like economists? (McCloskey)

4. An unusual corporate presentation (Japan, SoftBank).  How do you interpret their message overall?  I wish to know.

5. The musical world of birdsong contests.

6. “Really I would not have predicted in 1994 how much of 2017’s financial news would involve the Wu-Tang Clan.
