2. FIRE will move into broader free speech issues.

3. New Perry Mehrling book on Charles Kindleberger is coming.

4. “…we find that adding cultural measures to the model increases the explanatory power from 44% to 95% of the gender compensation gap.

5. How did civil service exams affect who gets employed by the federal government? p.s. Is there any chance here that “elitism” is good rather than bad?
