Links this week:
- Aaron Sell rants about some recent papers on whether there are sex differences in the willingness to have casual sex.
- Robert Kurzban (who I seem to be linking to a lot recently) posts on one of my favourite Gerd Gigerenzer papers.
- Alex Tabarrok comments on fat animals.
- “Derek” fathers over 500 children filling in for shellshocked husbands.
- Do we need more pharmaceutical advertising to enhance the placebo effect?
- Finally, after catching some tweets about Iain Couzin’s talk at Behaviour 2013, I was perusing his website and found a lot of interesting bits and pieces, including the below video. I’m convinced that work on herding and swarming has a lot to offer economics (as Andrew Oswald argues).
