Wednesday assorted links

1. The economics of vending machines.

2. Geneva introducing a minimum wage of $25 an hour.

3. Senegal proceeding with festival that usually attracts four to five million people (NYT).

4. Those new service sector quarantine work for the super-rich jobs.  And Covid-19 and acedia.

5. New calculations on what is needed for herd immunity.

6. A much quicker and easier serological test.

7. Lessons from the Israeli second wave.  Good stuff, but I would note a common tension found in many discussions.  When arguing against herd immunity and “segregate the old” approaches, it is common to note “you can’t stop the young from infecting the old,” though that point in the broader picture does not in fact work against herd immunity approaches.
