1 min read

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.

2. Anne Case and Angus Deaton present at this week's Brookings conference.

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.

4. 80,000 Hours has produced a video on AI risk.

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,‌
