Weekend Reading & Selected Links

1 min read

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

1. 'Additive Growth', a new and noteworthy NBER working paper by Thomas Philippon.

2. 'A Clash of Two Systems', Nassim Taleb's new Medium article on the war in Ukraine.

3. Two very short Popperian papers everyone should deeply internalise: 'A proof of the impossibility of inductive probability' (1983) by Karl Popper and David Miller, and 'The Non-Existence of Probabilistic Inductive Support' (1985) by Karl Popper alone.

4. 'Scientific slowdown is not inevitable', a new Works in Progress article by Ben Southwood.

5. Friend of the pod William Dalrymple has begun writing his latest book. If you zoom into the photo you can read the first page – it begins in classic Dalrymple style.

Have a great weekend,
