During the week, I save the longer form reads I come across for the weekend, when you have more time to pour yourself a cup of tea, and really give these works some focus.
This week is another strange and interesting set:
• We Aren’t the World: Shaking the foundations of psychology and economics (Pacific Standard)
• When Ian Fleming picked my grandfather to steal Nazi secrets (BBC)
• What Fracking Means for Southeast Asia (The Diplomat)
• The Miner’s Daughter: Australia’s richest—and most controversial—billionaire. (The New Yorker)
• Adult Children Ignoring Confucius Risk Lawsuits in China (Bloomberg)
• How The Glock Became America’s Weapon Of Choice (NPR) see also NRA money helped reshape gun law (The Washington Post)
• How I advise advisors to run an advisory business from my pulpit (RiaBiz)
• The Lock Pickers (Slate)
• A Letter to Paul Wolfowitz (Harper’s) see also How Americans were swindled by the hidden cost of the Iraq war (The Raw Story)

Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.
