[BLOG] Some Tuesday links

  • At A Fistful of Euros, Edward Hugh is resigned to ongoing instability in the Eurozone’s economy this year.
  • The immigration of Afrikaner farmers to Georgia, according to Eastern approaches, is actually occurring.
  • At Lawyers, Guns and Money, Robert Farley is scathing towards an ill-judged editorial at The New Republic calling for an untenable very partial military intervention in Syria.
  • Marginal Revolution wonders why more Americans aren’t moving to booming western Canada.
  • At The Naked Anthropologist, Laura Agustín reproduces a 2003 article arguing that rhwtoric on migration that assumes migrants’ weakness is flawed.
  • The Population Reference Bureau’s blog notes that improvements in sex ratios at birth in Indian states have stagnated for the time being.
  • Anatoly Karlin’s post at Sublime Oblivion is extended examination (translated from another’s post in Russian) describing how rising fertility, falling mortality, and net migration has helped Russian population growth return to positive territory.
  • At Torontoist, Patrick Metzger points out that Ontario’s upcoming budget isn’t going to be politically fun for everyone. Either McGuinty angers the electorate with an austerity budget or he lets things slide and our economy collapses. (Or both?)
