1. Ken White on yelling fire in a crowded theater.

2. General public poorly informed about central banks and economic statistics; news at 11.

3. Claims about unemployment insurance.

4. Broadband great stagnation has begun.

5. Obama’s State spreads to Indonesia.

6. A strange new shift in Sumnerism.

7. Caplan on the red pill nature of conventional labor economics.

8. Arab lives don’t matter, or, the Israeli equivalent to the mass shooting phenomenon.

Again, for any NBER paper, get a Romanian email address or ask me for the PDF below. Also, tell me the time (Eastern Standard) you will be available to retrieve the PDF.

  1. What I thought was rather a stretch or at least unproven!, was this: “Some Arab teenager takes a knife from his mother’s kitchen, looks for a uniformed person in the street and stabs him. If no soldier or policeman is available, he stabs a settler. If he sees no settler around, he stabs any Israel he can find.” Really? Yes, of course the article writer is able to get into the mind of his stereotypical Arab to know this!

    1. That’s what can be gleaned from the news reports. There’s nothing here that requires being able to “get into the mind of” a “stereotypical Arab” to know this. Reading comprehension, man. And Avnery has so much experience with Arabs that I suspect that he easily has more and better knowledge of the Arab mind than 90+% of Jews.
