Collected links

1. Michael Lewis on Ireland.

2. The legal difference between licensure and certification.  It's fascinating!  Yglesias has been harping for a long time on how legal restrictions on performing certain jobs is usually just about reducing competition and driving up prices.  Apparently certification is a simpler and less coercive option.

3. The case for cities.

4. Can Turkey serve as an example for Egypt?

5. Sweden is awesome.  Ever since I finished the Millennium trilogy, I've had a real hankering to visit the place.
