Monday assorted links

1. How not to scout for soccer talent.

2. NIMBY isn’t just CA: “Philly’s 43,000 vacant lots face a fresh political battle.

3. The new economics of Chinatowns: “Chinese restaurant jobs tend not to be in places with a high concentration of Chinese immigrants, but rather in places with a high proportion of non-Hispanic whites. In addition, the farther the jobs are from New York City, the higher the salary.”

4. MIE: Board game about alpacas.

5. IQ predicts how you vote in Denmark (multi-party system) but not America.  But note this: “In both countries, higher ability predicts left-wing social and right-wing economic views.”

6. Why Sacha Baron Cohen won’t be funny any more.
