A short video advertisement for a graduate economics textbook. (Who knew Recursive Macroeconomics could sound so interesting?)

GW law professor Daniel J. Solove replies to an argument commonly advanced these days: "Only if you're doing something wrong should you worry, and then you don't deserve to keep it private."

All throughout the country, unions are pounding tech companies with regulation: taxi unions oppose smart-phone ridesharing apps, hotel unions have threatened apartment owners who rent out their rooms, and college faculty unions are fighting low-cost online courses.
At least unions are honest: the best (and perhaps only) way to fight inequality is to stall progress.
But slowing technology will rob us of a more educated and innovative society. For instance, White House Science Fair Awardee, 17-year-old Brittany Wenger, designed a low-cost way to radically increase early cancer detection.

BBC News[!] provides a pretty good answer: "10 Reasons Why So Many People Are Moving to Texas".

But I, for one, won't hold my breath.
