Tuesday assorted links

1. Facts about research registries.

2. “It is this conjunction of visibility and invisibility that drives the Indian response. The lockdown meets all international standards so far; the relief package none.

3. Bryan is right about many but not all of these claims.  And here is more from Bryan.  I would note that the five percent or so of (non-fatal) cases who react very badly to Covid-19 do not seem to be obviously correlated with the comorbidities that drive mortality risk so strongly.  Bryan should take this piece and related results more seriously.

4. Scott Galloway on the future of college.  Good and vivid piece, except for the end.

5. Bleeding Heart Libertarians blog comes to an end.

6. Grindr will remove ethnicity filters in solidarity with Black Lives Matter.

7. “Counterfactual estimates suggest that, in the absence of international integration, the average resident of a low and lower-middle income country does not live in a market large enough to experience sustained poverty reduction.

8. Star Wars stormtroopers to enforce social distancing measures at Disney properties.

9. Summary of new results on super-spreaders (NYT).
