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:
Friday’s e-links (6/26)
I just subscribed to a slew of IMF blogs ranging from tech to trade to inequality. I also had a choice of regions. So far, the facts are solid, the topics interesting, and the analysis thought-provoking. For an example, do take a look at “The Great Lockdown through a Global Lens.”

I always enjoy Dr. Ed’s Blog. Focusing on key economic topics, he consistently adds to my insight. However, this recent post was an especially good summary of recovery possibilities. I’ve copied his graphs but do go to the link to read his analysis.

Unbeknownst to me, farmers have had difficulty drying their cherry crop. When fans and blowers were ineffective, they wound up with rot/split problems. But then according to a blog that I discovered through Marginal Revolution, human ingenuity took over. In the video below and blog, you can see how a helicopter downwash solves the problem. It is rather fascinating (and a brief diversion from a sadly cataclysmic world).

I suggest subscribing to the NBER Digest. Free (though nothing is free) and emailed monthly, the Digest is composed of approximately seven summaries of new NBER (National Bureau of Economic Research) papers. As a record of recent research, it is a handy barometer of what eminent scholars are considering. I especially liked the May issue because of a study that connected patent laws to opera quality and quantity.
