Challenges to monetary policy: lessons from Medieval Europe (Bank Underground)
Explores some monetary issues I briefly touched here.
Sadly, appreciations all over:
Anthony Downs, RIP (Volokh Conspiracy)
János Kornai, 1928-2021 (VOXEU)
Fred Foldvary, a Joyous Friend (Econlib)
Downs: Economic Theory of Democracy and Kornai: Soft-Budget Constraint, both staples of liberal economic tradition. NOL tribute to Foldvary (shorter, but more timely), by Brandon, here.
Globalisation has ruined Hollywood (UnHerd)
I would add The Lord of the Rings (2001-2003), as a cause-and-effect-too element in the trend.
