Selected tweets – 4/22/12 – 4/29/12

Trying to keep up with all the articles and papers of interest is an impossible task. Trying to also share those with others is even more difficult. In the past I have attempted to simply list those papers I thought of interest on this blog without much commentary. But Twitter is has now evolved into a powerful tool for archiving and sharing links to articles and papers. So I have taken to tweeting material @IntangibleEcon that I would have posted on this blog. And I share blog postings by tweeting on them. To complete the circle, however, I need to share tweets with the blog. So, this week I am starting a new weekly blog posting of the selected tweets for the past week. I will not be all of my tweets for the week (and will not contain the tweets of the previous blog postings — that is too much like an infinite loop). It will contain those links which I would have previously tried to post here – but now tweet.
So, here is the first installment:
