And a story of my own. When I was 18, I went off to Aurangabad to play the Maharashtra u-19 chess championship. This was in the early '90s. One detail: I had a beard then. (The Punjabi side of my genes, I guess.) + https://t.co/uL3G0LSdbb

At last finished reading The Narrow Corridor by Acemoglu and Robinson. This is a companion to their earlier book, Why Nations Fail. @pseudoerasmus has tweeted extensively about the book. @_alice_evans has done a podcast with Acemoglu. Long thread follows.

It’s time for a quick #EconCookingTwitter thread on one of my all-time favorites, duck confit.
