Links for 11th Jan, 2019

  1. “On what principle is it that, when we see nothing but improvement behind us, we are to expect nothing but deterioration before us?”
    I had no clue about this, and thoroughly enjoyed reading it.
  2. Brad DeLong is most displeased.
  3. Saving the tortilla.
  4. A better way to process this link is to immerse yourself on the two books by Bill Bryson on Britain.
  5. Big data and the census. Wayyyy tl;dr? Complements or substitutes?
