Good Reads - Mid June 2019

  1. “There is actually no such thing as atheism. Everybody worships. The only choice we get is what to worship.” David Foster Wallace’s timeless speech. Sure wish he was still around to comment on today’s world.

  2. A very different (and entertaining) way to look at income statistics from Russ Roberts. Did the rich get richer? Yes, but it doesn’t mean quite what you think.

  3. Everyone’s down on Tesla….here is the bull case. #1 luxury car maker. #1 in self driving tech. #1 in battery tech.

  4. Europe regulated privacy on the Internet (GDPR). Early returns are poor. It has helped the big players and done nothing for real privacy.

  5. Looks like the California to Texas migration continues. Eventually this will cause real political turmoil in CA (and make TX truly purple).

  6. Tyler Cowen offers some perspective on the panic surrounding internet privacy. “Gossip is an age-old problem, and still today many of the biggest privacy harms come through very traditional channels.”
