Looking for something to read?

Prof. Kenworthy publishes a list of links each month. The links are usually data heavy (yeah!) and occasionally come from sites on my blogroll but more often they come from somewhere “left” of it, e.g. Ezra Klein.

Anyway, there’s always something good like this exit poll that shows increasing support for goverenment intervention. Also, here’s a paper by Rebecca Blank discussing ways to improve economic statistics. I actually saw her present this paper last quarter here in Davis. She’s a pretty engaging speaker; been in Washington a long time and has a pretty good idea of how policy is actually made.
