This is where I write whatever I feel like writing, hopefully with a bias towards things that are important and/or interesting to others:

Philosophy, economics, effective altruism, books, half-baked ideas, and more. The the “top” tab for the posts people find most interesting. I’m not too good at guessing which ones those will be. Some of my personal favorites (loosely in order) are:

  1. Direct effects matter!

  2. Kids are people too

  3. The topic is not the content

  4. Deficits don’t matter, spending does

  5. Most Ivy-smart students aren't at Ivy-tier schools

  6. On silence

  7. A progressive-ish case against the minimum wage
