  • What Growing Up in Compton Teaches You
    A video on one persons experience.
  • More on the non-mystery of non-work: Germany v. US | Jared Bernstein | On the Economy
    I say before we go to the shaming place, let’s get the policy right. The third figure shows a clear cyclical response to ups and down in job opportunities around the negative trend, and here I show that the cyclical responsiveness has increased over time. That sense to me, given that our welfare system has shifted more towards in-work benefits. While disability insurance often gets raised in this context, the highly regarded CEA report on this topic assigned less than 10% of the decline in prime-age male work to the disability rolls.
  • I Paid $2,500 for a ‘Hamilton’ Ticket. I’m Happy About It. – The New York Times
    Now, at this point, some people might object to this price. Terms like “scalping” and “price gouging” are pejoratives used to demonize those who resell tickets at whatever high prices the market will bear.
  • Every Trade Deal Needs a Referee – Bloomberg View
    Part of the discomfort over dispute-resolution panels is the notion that their private deliberations circumvent the democratic process. But it is a basic feature of most democratic governments that the legislature sets up legal institutions that subsequently act outside of direct democratic control. 
  • How the Right Changed Its Mind on Prison – Bloomberg View
    But there was this big anomaly of the criminal-justice system, where that usual package of conservative reforms hadn’t been applied. So I think a lot of what states are doing are fairly obvious things that a conservative would do once you stopped thinking about the criminal-justice system as (like the military or the cops) being “your” part of government, and therefore not as subject to the machinery of control that you apply to things you don’t trust.
