1. The Commonwealth Foundation makes the case for switching from pensions to 401-K style plans.
2. Marginal Revolution discusses Levitt and Fryer on race. This seems to be consistent with Murray's book Growing Apart. Culture matters a lot. Social programs like welfare that discourage work have caused so much harm it's tough to quantify.
3. Story on how New Jersey might influence other states to legalize online poker. I would love it if Pennsylvania licensed with New Jersey on online poker. It's a way to increase personal freedom and earn additional tax revenue at the same time. Seems like a no-brainer.
