Agnostic has a post up in which he uses the GSS to look into some stats on gun-ownership, which inspired me to do the same to investigate some questions he might be interested in. The variables are OWNGUN and MARRIED, with SEX as the control variable. (more…)

There’s an unfinished draft of a post I last updated in 2010 intended to be a review of Karl Polanyi’s “The Great Transformation”. Reading Mark Koyama today made it concrete that I’m certainly never going to bother converting the notes I wrote into something coherent or checking the book out again to revisit anything, since I can just link to others. A book by a certain Irish farmer/economist is another story since it’s obscure enough I still feel some sense of obligation and probably won’t find anything worth just linking to instead. Pseudoerasmus might be the best person to link to, but he’s more occupied critiquing Polanyi’s descendants.
