Must-read (20/05/2018)

Here are some recommended readings:

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