Links of the Week (18/10/13)

These are the links the Centre members have been reading this week.

1. A very comprehensive roundup of articles about this weeks three Nobel prize winners.

2. Janet Yellen is the new chair of the Federal Reserve. Her husband, George Akerlof, is also a Nobel-winning economist. Here is a New Yorker article from 2010 discussing procrastination research with quotes from Akerlof, Ariely, Loewenstein and more.

3. The Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis interviews Richard Thaler - a nice history of behavioural economics from the perspective of one of its founders. "Cashew theory" indeed!
