Overcoming Bias blog by Robin Hanson
From the site:
“Overcoming Bias is economist Robin Hanson’s blog on honesty, signaling, disagreement, forecasting, and the far future.”
Hanson is an economist and George Mason University. I can describe his posts only as eclectic, fascinating, and incredibly deep. A couple of my early favorite posts including the following:
Work Signals – On the use of vacation leave.
Experts Agree – On the development of the new Diagnostic Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) and how mental health professionals have more incentive to agree with a foregone conslusion.
War Games are Fake – How the military (allegedly) stacks the deck to make new techologies seem superior.
