Link love

Wandering scientist is starting to do postcards to voters again. We can too!

This is definitely affecting my parenting AND my savings rate.  Forget the Millionaire next door, my kids need a safety net.  Related:  why are parents so scared about college.  One thing with the college scandal is that it seems like a lot of them are nouveau riche… the truly rich don’t need to get scammed by cheaters.

An example of misreporting from the national review.  TW:  stalking.

I had heard Roland Fryer was a terrible boss, and I knew he misused economics to “prove” racist outcomes (usually by pretending selection bias isn’t a thing), but I didn’t know that he was a serial sexual harasser.  A lot of side comments I’d heard made a lot more sense after reading this article.

Women in economics report rampant sexual assault and bias.

    From an NPR story on the school threats:

    School Superintendent Dr. Rosa Atkins confirmed that the person charged was not a student at the school in question, Charlottesville High School.

    “Hate…violence…intolerance is not welcomed in Charlottesville,” Brackney said.

    “And in Charlottesville and around the globe we stand firmly in stating there are not ‘very fine people’ standing on both sides of this issue,” she added, in an apparent reference to remarks made by President Trump in the wake of violence sparked by a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville in August 2017.

    Using the word terrorists for mass shootings is important. Because they are terror attacks.
