Assorted Links

Alex Tabarrok at Marginal Revolution has a good post on Albert Hirschman, who passed away this week. Hirschman’s Exit, Voice and Loyalty has been on my “to read” list for a while; I may move it up in the queue.

A presentation on completion rates for Ph.D. students in a number of fields (pdf). Lots of good graphs and good statistics. I’m not sure why the numbers in the social sciences are so awful.

Foreign Policy has a piece on how the Obama administration is managing to anger both sides in the Syrian civil war.

A very good article in Wired looking back on the Occupy movement.
