Friday assorted links

1. David Brooks on America falling apart (NYT).

2. Jonah Goldberg is right.  And Megan McArdle is right.

3. Shawn Bradley’s life is tough.

4. “Likewise, authors from the same PhD program or who previously worked with the reviewer are significantly more likely to receive a positive evaluation. We also find that sharing “signals” of ability, such as publishing in “top five”, attending a high ranked PhD program, or being employed by a similarly ranked economics department significantly influences editor decisions and/or reviewer recommendations.”  Link here.

5. So a virus triggers multiple sclerosis? And more here (NYT).  And, not unrelated, the nature of Long Covid.

6. Links from Chris Blattman, who is blogging again.

7. Good Bridgewater/Dalio piece (FT).
