Thursday assorted links

1. What do economists know about the Black Death?

2. Topol and Offit on vaccines.  Excellent material, but it is striking how conservative Offit is when it comes to means of responsibly accelerating knowledge about vaccines.  Not a peep about market incentives, for one thing.  WWJBS?

3. More detail on the Taiwanese Covid response, especially from the tech side.

4. “…which includes work on the rhetorical strategies of far-right groups.

5. Super recognisers, recommended.

6. Using AlphaZero (and Kramnik) to invent new forms of chess.
