Every once in a while, (and sometimes each day) I listen to a great podcast, enjoy an article, or see a good video that I want to share with you.
I like to think of them as my e-links:

I just discovered a new podcast series. Called Cautionary Tales, it is from the always interesting Tim Harford. The one episode I listened to connected the wrong movie temporarily getting the Academy Award for best picture, a nuclear disaster, and Galileo. Explained as a series about mistakes, it is so much more.

Definitely low on the literary ladder, the book I listened to this week was a great break from my economics research. At the beginning of the book, killing the occupants, an elevator falls from the top floor of a skyscraper. The next day, and then after that, elevator catastrophes kill people. Hundreds of pages later, after getting to know the mayor of NYC, his son, a newspaper reporter, and two cops, we find out who is the elevator murderer. The book is called Elevator Pitch and I highly recommend it.

One podcast especially stuck this week. Reset looked at a scam that Airbnb has only begun to deal with. While the podcast specifically targeted a group with multiple listings, it more broadly was about the downside of quality checks from large corporations ranging from Amazon to Airbnb.

After listening to the Econtalk podcast on More From Less, I bought the book. Perfect for history and economics, the podcast and the book do a good job of explaining why we’ve needed fewer resources to grow our economy.
