40th Selected Links

1 min read

Happy weekend! Here are some links to things I've been reading or listening to that you might also enjoy:

1. 'Bertrand Russell on his meeting with Vladimir Lenin in 1920', an audio excerpt of an interview of Russell, via Nicholas Gruen.

2. 'Clear Writing Produces Clearer Thoughts', a 2015 blog post by Paul Romer.

3. 'The Housing Market and Financial Stability', Assistant RBA Governor Michele Bullock's recent speech. A quote: "The strength in the housing market is positive for the economy, and indeed an important channel for monetary policy to support the economy through housing construction, home improvements and purchases of household items."

4. 'The Ants That Ate Plutarch', a classic 2002 story by ABC Radio National (transcript only).

5. Abraham Lincoln's Lyceum Address. Written when he was 28, it was one of his earliest -- and strongest -- speeches: "Towering genius disdains a beaten path."

Have a great weekend,
