Friday assorted links

1. WSJ profile of David Autor.

2. By Dean Ball, a simple public choice theory of what will go wrong with SB 1047.  I genuinely do not see why people such as Dan Hendrycks do not get this.

3. Derek Thompson: “We really are living in an era of negativity-poisoned discourse that is (*empirically*) historically unique.”  The importance of this cannot be overestimated.  And here is his excellent Atlantic piece on how parts of the Anglosphere are exporting despair — one of the best and most important pieces of the year.  Which side of this dynamic are you on?

4. Big news vs. HIV?

5. The future of small drones?

6. Steve Teles on academic sectarianism.
