My top ten readings (summer break)

My family and I will be spending the weekend at Ormond Beach to celebrate the end of the school year, so I will be blogging less frequently, if at all, until Tuesday. (My youngest daughter’s last day of school was on Thursday.) In the meantime, below are some of the books, essays, and interviews — an eclectic collection assembled in alphabetical order by author — that I have recently read or will be reading during the weekend:

  1. Simon Beard’s biographical essay about Derek Parfit’s “Repugnant Conclusion”
  2. Samuel Bray, A student’s guide to the meanings of “equity” (via SSRN)
  3. Liam Kofi Bright, Why do scientists lie?
  4. Bryan Caplan, Why I am not an Austrian economist
  5. Tyler Cowen’s conversation with David Deutsch
  6. New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison’s 1967 Playboy interview
  7. John Morgan, Financing Public Goods by Means of Lotteries
  8. Haim Sandberg, What is legal innovation?
  9. Robert Sanger, Gettier in a court of law (re-read)
  10. David Wrone, The Zapruder Film: Reassessing JFK’s Assassination (book cover pictured below)
The Zapruder Film: Reframing JFK's Assassination: Wrone, David R.:  9780700619436: Amazon.com: Books

  1. I read Caplan’s essay last year. He makes some excellent arguments. I adhere to a weird mixture of various strains of market-oriented political economy. I personally cannot completely dismiss the Austrian school. Caplan’s wrong about time preference. That is one of his general arguments against the Austrians I have the most trouble accepting.
