Merely a few short items that combine some of my favorite things:
- First, sports and economics. Use some economic thinking in making your NCAA Basketball picks.
- Second, the Coase Theorem and reality (such as it is). See how this foundational idea of the relation between law and economics is playing out with a Las Vegas convienence store.
- Lastly, booze and economics. Read Tim Harford's take on alcohol prices and their effect on consumption.
Sorry that there is nothing of substance this week (do read the above articles, though). I am away from Madison until the weekend. That and all the festivities for St. Patrick's Day, my dad's birthday and a trip to Pittsburgh.
I will need to get back to work to get some rest for a change.
