Friday’s Reading List

By Taylor Marvin

Louis Guglielmi, “Mental Geography”, 1938. Via Brain Pickings.

What I read this week:

As the United States dithers, an emboldened North Korea is quietly establishing itself as a small nuclear power.

Amusing — and depressing — anti-women’s suffrage cartoons.

Watching the West Wing with Egyptians in Cairo.

Why do governments offer concessions to terrorists, if these concessions often increase violence?

Economic liberty after Obama.

Asia’s economic transition.

How the USAF screwed up 20 years of acquisitions by chasing the 5th generation dream above all else.

Why the world can’t have a Nate Silver. Felix Salmon has more on how quants translate models into book deals.

Stephen Walt asks an interesting question about preventive wars: why Iran, and not Laos?

Your Hand in Mine – Morning Drums.
