Assorted Links

1. The Economist on British schools

2. Are "Dublin graduates" more likely to find jobs?

3. Poor students 'just as likely to gain good degree'

4. Volunteering: something that people feel morally obligated to do when asked, but which they would just as soon let someone else do?

5. Curb Your Enthusiasm: The Economist on the dangers of getting too excited

6. Speaking of curbing enthusiasm, below is a clip from the TV show where Larry David teaches Christian Slater the unwritten rules of hors d'oeuvres consumption. Peter Martin explains how this video illustrates the work of Elinor Ostrom for which she won this year's Economics Nobel Prize (on rules for managing common-pool resources).
