January 2022 posts
Welcome to my new email newsletter.
You are receiving this because you previously signed up to receive email notifications for new posts on Jason Collins blog.
Most of you signed up when I used Wordpress, receiving a copy of each post by email as soon as it was published (and yes, it’s been a while). I’ve since moved blogging platforms and don’t have an automated system to send you the posts. As a result, I am testing a substitute of sending a monthly newsletter with links to the last month’s posts.
So, here are January’s posts:
Best books I read in 2021: I’ve also listed all books I read during the year.
A default of disbelief: We should be treating many published results in behavioural science as exploratory or as untested hypotheses. Start from a position near “unlikely to be true”, and update to a stronger belief in the presence of replications or other supporting evidence.
The 1/N portfolio versus the optimal strategy: Does a simple heuristic outperform?: Looking deeper into a famous story about Harry Markowitz’s failure to use his own theories when he invested.
A critical behavioural economics and behavioural science reading list: First published in 2017, I’ve updated with more recent books and articles.
As always, comments welcome.
