1 min read

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

1. 'Former governor Ian Macfarlane: What’s wrong with the RBA review', the recent AFR article by former RBA governor (and podcast guest) Ian Macfarlane.

2. 'Entrepreneurial Statecraft Gets the Goods', a recent Palladium article by Wolf Tivy.

3. In light of recent AI developments, I've been reading books about how technological revolutions were perceived by contemporaries. Here's my (non-systematic) list so far (suggestions welcome):

The Gutenberg Revolution;

The Printing Press as an Agent of Change;

The Culture of Time and Space: 1880-1918;

When Old Technologies Were New: Thinking About Electric Communication in the Late Nineteenth Century;

American Genesis: A Century of Invention and Technological Enthusiasm, 1870-1970;

Invention and Innovation: A Brief History of Hype and Failure.

Have a great weekend,
