Assorted Links

1. Thoughts from Malcolm Gladwell (HT: Marginal Revolution)

2. I'm tempted buy some of these (HT: Marginal Revolution)

3. Bill Easterly on Affirmative Action. I think he underestimates how much Kagan may have benefited from affirmative action. If 70% of qualified lawyers are men, but Obama wanted to nominate a woman, her chances tripled due to AA.

4. Chris Blattman has a surprisingly good experience dealing with the government

5. The Science of Marriage (HT: Chris Blattman)
I used a panel dataset to estimate the hedonic value of getting married or divorced and oddly both turned out to be negative. What is up with that?
