Saturday assorted links

1. Rationalist baby names?

2. New Brazilian econ Ph.D student at UC Davis is in fact very famous.

3. Robby Soave on vaccine mandates (NYT).

4. The demand for academic economists is rebounding.

5. Australian vaccination progress could be doing better — incentives matter!

6. Adoption and IQ.  It is still my view, by the way, that very large cultural changes can alter IQs quite a lot, as evidenced by the Flynn Effect.  That is one reason why economic development often is so difficult.

7. Final summary and published version of Robin Hanson,, grabby aliens paper.
