Minimum Standards

David Meyer adds lots of links to the blogosphere as well as references to academic papers a propos the discussion that started with Alex Tabarrok's claim that minimum requirements for housing standards are unhelpful. Still, the most supportive quote for Alex' case I've seen is put forth by DeLong, saying that "Alex is in fact teaching [his students] to think like economists". A statement I would rather read as a caution against only thinking about issues from the economist's viewpoint. Thanks to Anne for the link.
