Stuff you should read

1) Fascinating (but long) exploration of the development of social democracy over the past 100 years.  Very informative and very thought-provoking.  

2) Terrific interview with a criminal justice reporter on the problems with our criminal justice system.  I was most intrigued by the part where he discusses that the incentives are always towards more prosecution.  Much like health care incentives are always towards more treatment.  

3) A toy drive in Texas is checking the immigration status of parents before letting poor kids have toys.  So wrong!!  Yglesias demolishes the amoral logic behind this.
