Weekend Links

Economic historian  Robert Higgs has an excellent, short essay on one of the most powerful concepts ever identified: Joseph Schumpeter's "creative destruction".

Two articles discussing major problems within the science community: the first looks at bias in forensic psychiatric court testimony, the second (and very geeky, so beware!) looks at the problems inherent in statistical testing.

Was "Jack the Ripper" really "Lizzie the Ripper"?

Must see video of Leonard Reed on "The Seven Principles of Sound Public Policy".  It's an hour long, and it's an hour very well spent.  Watch it here.
