Thursday Assorted Links

1. Why doesn’t Germany accept ~1 million non-Muslim “refugees” residing in Poland?

2. Russia’s budget deficit for 2015 as a percentage of GDP basically the same as that of the U.S. (Saudi Arabia’s is 15% of GDP)

3. Fed remains excessively and predictably optimistic; news at 11.

4. Islamic State v. al-Qaeda (yes, the link is correct)

5. Equal occupational fatality day.

6. How quickly is knowledge spread in rural India?

7. Obvious fact; little-noted: international labor productivity differences are greater than international GDP/capita differences.

8. Democrats are less satisfied with equality, but somewhat more with opportunity, than Republicans.
