Potpourri

Summary:
==> My interview with Titus Gebel on his proposal for free private cities. ==> Carlos and I discuss the 2017 tax reform’s impact on charitable giving. ==> This YouTube video using “optimal stopping theory” to guide you in dating wasn’t what I was expecting. In the search models we studied in grad school, you would decide on your reservation wage and keep going on interviews until you got an offer at least that high. In contrast, the video describes a strategy where you don’t pick a reservation level of desirability in your partner, but instead decide on how much time you will sample, and then you switch to saying, “Now, from this point forward, I will marry the person who is the best I’ve yet dated.”
