Links this week:

  1. The freedom to pursue informed self-harm has a long and noble tradition.
  2. What happens when behavioural economics is used to explain rational behaviour.
  3. A great summary of some of Gordon Tullock’s work. HT: Garett Jones
  4. Another study on the limited effect of parenting on IQ. HT: Billare via Stuart Ritchie
  5. What Hayek might say to Republicans.
  6. The long shadow of history on the distribution of human capital in Europe. HT: Ben Southwood
  7. Opposition to urban development by “environmentalists” is among my bigger gripes. Left-leaning cities are less affordable.
