  • Report: 18.2M health sensors will ship in 2017 (Jonah Comstock, Mobil Health News)  Hat tip to Roger Erickson, who told Econintersect:
    "Brilliant! Feed 'em crap that makes 'em sick (Buffet's Coca Cola? Krispy Kreme?), then help them monitor how sick they are."
  • Rising Inequality: Transitory or Permanent? New Evidence from a Panel of U.S. Tax Returns (Jason DeBacker, Bradley Heim, Vasia Panousi, Shanthi Ramnath and Ivan Vidangos, Brookings Institute, 17 March 2013)
    For male labor earnings, we find that the entire increase in the cross-sectional inequality over our sample period was permanent, that is, it reflected increases in the dispersion of the permanent component of earnings. For total household income, the large increase in inequality over our sample period was predominantly, though not entirely, permanent.
