Here's links I think are worth reading:
An open letter to University students
Debate over SOPA - people talking reasonably - note: I completely agree with Mankiw.
Krugman inconsistencies. Not surprising.
As far as books:
I've recently read:
Notes from a Small Island by Bill Bryson
The Confession by John Grisham
The Lincoln Lawyer by Connelly (I liked the book but haven't seen the movie - is it worth seeing?)
The Defended (- biography of Minute Bol)
ESPN The Uncensored History (dated but good)
In progress or in the queue:
Keynes vs. Hayek: The Clash that Defined Modern Economics. I'm reading this now.
11/22/63 by Stephen King: Also reading this now.
Race Against the Machine (in queue)
Thinking Fast and Slow (in queue)
Posner (The Crisis of Capitalist Democracy)
I've got time on the tube to read, so hopefully I can get these read in the next month or so.
