Here are some recommended readings:
- Michael Shermer on utilitarianism, Kantian ethics and natural-rights theory.
- Krugman on sticky wages. Most economists agree that, for several reasons, wages can be sticky downwards, but are wages sticky upwards as well?
- David Henderson on segregation during the Jim Crow era.
- Noah Smith on the use of machine learning for macroeconomic forecasting.
- Noah Smith (again) on Parag Pathak’s research.
