Welcome to Weekend Links for March 13-14. We are very happy to have you here, and I hope you enjoy the selection of links.
One change is no more markets links. Folks are smart about that, and I’m hoping our commentators will add their own links on markets content.
The community seems to be keen on Politics and Governance links which bring unusual viewpoints out, and allow interesting disagreements, so trying to do more of that. Feedback welcome, please ping me so I can incorporate it in.
Welcome and happy links!
Politics and Governance
The goal here is not to suggest what is right, true or honorable. The goal is to bring you unconventional content which can spur valuable interactions with other wrong-thinkers.
