    1. just finished Waldfogel's book. Academic in tone, but really insightful. Loved his careful finding that, contrary to fears of small countries, digitization has benefited content providers (particularly the Nordic countries) with smaller home markets

  4. I'm currently reading Cost Benefit Revolution by Cass Sunstein. So far, it's been a fantastic read.

  5. Thank you!

    Some books I've enjoyed that I think would be relevant and interesting are:
    - Algorithms Unlocked, by the MIT Press on the principles and applications of computer algorithms
    - The Elephant in the Brain by Robin Hanson
    - The Signal and the Noice by Nate Silver

    Happy reading!
