The Finger Points Outwards - No. 71

MUSIC/SPORT: The picture of baseball player George Brett that may have inspired Lorde’s song ‘Royals’.

VIDEO GAMES:  How nostalgia keeps us all playing Super Mario.

ECONOMICS:  Last week I typed the words ‘best economics sites’ into Google, and came up with this page. It has a good mix of economics and economic policy sites, from both the left and right sides. The posts below though, which I found through the sites listed on the page – or through the links on the sites listed on the page – have a bit more ‘novelty value’:

From Cheap Talk:  A survey of favourite numbers between 1 and 100 (the winner may not be what you think).

From Liz Fosslien: 14 Ways An Economist Says I Love You.

From PNC: The Christmas Price Index.

From The Pin Factory: How can used cars be more valuable than new cars?

From Captain Capitalism: An argument/rant about why chief executives are ‘worth’ many times more than low level employees.
