Links I liked

1. Robin Hanson - "our worst bias is meta - being more aware of biases makes us more willing to assume that others' biases, and not ours, are responsible for our disagreement."

2. James Heckman - "interventions early in the life cycle of disadvantaged children have much higher economic returns than later interventions such as reduced pupil-teacher ratios, public job training, convict rehabilitation programs, adult literacy programs, tuition subsidies or expenditure on police."

3. Barack Obama - "[absent African-American fathers have] abandoned their responsibilities, acting like boys instead of men."

4. Mick Stroup says the Ricardian equivalence strawman still lives.
