Links this week:

  1. Big ideas are destroying international development. Dream smaller.

  2. Appealing to my biases - the skeptics guide to institutions Part 1 and Part 2.

  3. Most published results in finance are false.

  4. Be mean, look smarter.

  5. Constructing illusions.

  6. Predicting complex genotypes from genomic data - for those who confuse these two statements:

“The brain is complex and nonlinear and many genes interact in its construction and operation.”

“Differences in brain performance between two individuals of the same species must be due to nonlinear (non-additive) effects of genes.”
