Assorted links

1. Prices, Poverty, and Inequality: Why Americans are Better Off Than You Think, by Christian Broda and David E. Weinstein.  The full text is free on-line at the link.

2. The economics of Scientology.

3. 5, 322, and $4250 are the relevant numbers in this story of a journal run amok.  Shocking (or is it?).

4. NYT 100 Notable Books.  It’s an OK enough list and you can think of these as the mainstream picks.

5. Questions about bagels.
