Tuesday assorted links

1. A few thoughts about UFOs.

2. More on the vaccines from Russia and China.

3. “We conclude by analyzing New York’s efforts to address out-of-network billing through binding arbitration between physicians and insurers over out-of-network payments. This intervention reduced out-of-network billing by 12.8 percentage points (88%).”  JPE link here.

4. “As if 2020 couldn’t get any weirder, airline pilots landing at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) on Sunday, August 30th, reported seeing “a guy in a jetpack” flying about 300 yards off their wing while on final approach to the bustling airport. What makes the reports even stranger is that, like a scene out of The Rocketeer, the airliners were descending through 3,000 feet when jetpack guy showed up next to them.”  Link here.

5. The public choice of NIMBY: “Historic district designation generates a 12-23% premium for house transactions in Denver.”
