Grain upon grain, one by one, and one day, suddenly, there’s a heap, a little heap, the impossible heap:

— Martha Nussbaum’s brilliant and comprehensive brief for marriage quality.

— Transportation in ACES.

Womenomics is full of wishful thinking.

— Has the coalition in a box model run its course? Seems very premature to me to proclaim HCANN a failure.

— Ezra Klein says reform is impossible because the political system is so screwy, which is probably true but it’s worth noting that specific senators have agency and moral responsibility and always could choose to do the right thing.

— Cap & Trade lessons from Europe.

Song of the day: St Vincent “Actor Out of Work”.
