  1. Danny Kahneman‘s Thinking, Fast and Slow (read his blog Q&A here) named a Times book of the year. Congrats!
  2. Is “big data” really ready for primetime?
  3. An economist (Laurence Kotlikoff) is running for President. (Did he listen to this?) His books include The Coming Generational Storm and Spend ‘Til the End. (HT: Peter Coy)
  4. Active trading — of military products! — between countries at war. (Especially interesting in light of Iran’s blockade threat.) (HT: David Wigram)
  5. Am guessing “@msnbcIntern” isn’t either of those things. Sample: “#MSNBC held an office #iacaucus. Only lasted seconds as there was unanimous agreement that Barack Obama is ‘very dreamy.'”
  6. The Steelers’ running-back corps this weekend consists of three undrafted players: Isaac Redman, John Clay, and Chad Spann. No Franco Harrises there.
