  • Taller people are happier and richer. (HT to Aid Watch)
  • According to the UNHCR, displaced populations are now at an all time high. Keep in mind though that the UN, in my experience, has done a very bad job of keeping track of populations in the past, and that now there are more people to be displaced. I wonder what the world per capita rate of displacement is? (HT to FP)
  • The value of a flat tax may be highly overblown, if we are to believe Russia's experience with it.
  • Does better health really encourage development?
