Linky Friday: Housing the World

[Im5] I’m not sure I can think of a more efficient way to breed anti-immigration resentment.

[Ho2] Pete Saunders writes of the limits of Build Baby Build.
[Ho4] Rhiannon Bury argues they can mitigate London’s housing shortage by building over railways. A quarter of a million homes!

[Hc2] There may be a new way to straighten teach, and Orthodontists are trying to put a stop to it.
[Hc3] Pascal-Emmanuel Gobry explains how a ton of our healthcare spending is being wasted.
[Hc4] This is really exciting! Dyslexia is one of those we don’t even know how common it really is, in part because we don’t know how it works. I’d always assumed it was strictly a brain thing.
[Hc5] Kumar Yogesh wants to unload medical records onto the patient.
[SC3] In addition to being generally “crimes against women” should we actually think of sexual assault more as crimes against the young (PDF)?
[SC5] What… what precisely does Bernard Godard think rape is?
