Rationalist:

Dalio’s Principles by Robin Hanson – Fairly negative book about Ray Dalio’s principles for running his hedgefund Bridgewater: “Dalio also seems to equate conflict and negative opinions with honesty. That is, he seeks a culture where people can say things that others would rather not hear, but doesn’t seem to consider that such negative opinions need not be ‘honest’ opinions. The book makes hundreds of claims, but doesn’t cite outside sources, nor compare itself to other writings on the subject.”

Yimbyism Explained Without Supply And by Noah Smith – A booming tech sector will bring in tech workers regardless of how much new housing is built.
