A week of links

Links this week:

  1. Andrew Berry guest blogs at Why Evolution is True on Alfred Russel Wallace’s unfortunate end to his Amazon expedition. The equivalent of accidentally erasing your PhD thesis the day before submission?
  2. I am enjoying some of the press coming out about Marlene Zuk’s new book Paleofantasy: What Evolution Really Tells Us about Sex, Diet, and How We Live (and the reactions to it); this week an interview in the Los Angeles Review of Books.
  3. An interview with Gary Becker on rationality, behavioural economics and the use of mathematics in economics.
  4. A profile of Ingela Alger, another economist looking to bring some evolutionary biology into the picture.
