Happy weekend! Here are some links to things I've been reading or watching that you might also enjoy:
1. 'Why Don’t We Just Build New Cities?', a new article by Jerusalem Demsas.
3. This week I revisited 'Efflorescences and Economic Growth in World History: Rethinking the “Rise of the West” and the Industrial Revolution', a great paper by former guest of the pod Jack Goldstone.
5. Have you derived value from my podcast and want to support it? I'm finally enabling listener contributions. You can support me here. (Please don't support me if you're struggling at the moment or would need to draw down your charity budget.)
Have a great weekend,
