Sunday assorted links

1. Economics, as taught at U Mass Amherst, does not make U Mass Amherst undergraduates more selfish.  Good paper, but incorrectly framed.  And which topics do then make them more selfish?  Any?

2. “Every registered thoroughbred in the world is descended from one of three stallions: the Byerly Turk, the Darley Arabian, and the Godolphin Arabian.” (New Yorker)

3. The 25 most popular foods in Algeria.  And finishing Finnegans Wake.

4. Maybe these should be questions on the GREs? (NYT)

5. Kahneman, Sibony, and Sunstein Op-Ed on Noise (NYT).  And here is a Guardian interview with Kahneman.

6. “Drilling companies rarely recommend dowsers to their clients, but the practice is common nonetheless.”  Starts slow, but interesting.
