Branko Milanovic on expecting institutions to do everything for us.
I have no answer to the “outsourcing” of morality. I see it as inevitable although I cannot say that I enjoy that prospect. Being an economist, I cannot even see exactly why I should not enjoy it, but I still do not.
Fish have advanced social behaviours. Work like this makes me wonder if evolutionary explanations of human behaviour should focus so heavily on the pleistocene. Maybe some basic patterns were laid down much much earlier.
