Good Reading in This Weekend’s Times

  1. Adam Davidson on high-end nannies.
  2. Nathaniel Penn with a snapshot of a recent class of college grads (depressing).
  3. Alicia Tugend with a fascinating piece about how we remember and process criticism/bad events more forcefully than praise/good events. It’s a psychological take on loss aversion, with good examples from Clifford Nass, Roy Baumeister, and Teresa Amabile.

    I wish the NYT would parallel its article on the travails of recent graduates from a high-end liberal arts school, with one on grads from say MIT.
