42nd Selected Links

1 min read

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

1. 'What Drives House Price Cycles? International Experience and Policy Issues', a new survey paper on housing market dynamics by John Duca, John Muellbauer and Anthony Murphy. (For a less academic explainer, see the authors' VoxEU article.)

2. 'Why It's Hard to Innovate in Construction', a recent Substack article by Brian Potter.

3. 'Inside Singapore Changi Airport's New $1.3 Billion Lifestyle Hub', a short YouTube video of Singapore's 'Jewel'.

4. Stripe Press. Shared simply because I think it’s a cool and effective website.

5. 'A ‘Historic Event’: First Malaria Vaccine Approved by W.H.O.', Apoorva Mandavilli of The New York Times reports what must surely be the best news of the week, maybe the year.

6. 'Large teams develop and small teams disrupt science and technology', a 2019 Nature study by Lingfei Wu, Dashun Wang and James Evans.

7. 'Slowed canonical progress in large fields of science', a new study by Johan Chu and James Evans.

8. The Japanese Banking Crisis, by Himino Ryozo, commissioner of Japan's Financial Services Agency. Published this year, it is the first English account of the Japanese banking crisis written by a Japanese regulator. The book is open access and features an endorsement on page two by Australia's very own Waynes Byres.

9. These Moments: Antoine Dufour shows what's possible with the acoustic guitar.

Have a great weekend,
