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. The new 'Statement on the Conduct of Monetary Policy' (basically Australia's equivalent of the Fed's Framework). Compare it with Raghuram Rajan's comments on my podcast (see this video clip of him addressing the RBA Review directly).
  2. Australia's greatest cultural export?
  3. 'Plato, pilates and pubs: has an Irish town found the secret to the good life?', a recent review of Daniel Miller's new book, The Good Enough Life, in The Guardian. Via friend of the pod and Skerriesian Sam Enright.
  4. Friend of the pod Misha Zelinksy has published his first fictional book The Sun Will Rise. I haven't read it yet, but it was covered in the AFR.
  5. 'America Is a Heartbeat Away From a War It Could Lose', A. Wess Mitchell's recent Foreign Policy article.
  6. Breakthroughs of 2023.
  7. 'Can we predict human behaviour? A discussion with Brett Hall', from Vaden Masrani.

Have a great weekend,‌
