Monday assorted links

1. Cosmos and Taxis symposium on Boettke and Hayek.

2. Justin Fox on the economics of textbooksGreg Mankiw comments.  I think OER [open educational resources] will do better, and is already doing better, than Greg suggests.  A lot of “OER” is simply a mix of unmeasured uses of Google, Wikipedia, and YouTube, rather than a formal non-profit outcompeting the for-profit suppliers on their own terms.  I do agree with Greg that “In any event, it is not a good time to be entering the market with a new textbook.”

3. Rain as a source of renewable energy.

4. The problem with immigration is political, not economic.

5. Christopher Balding on health services in China.
