Welcome to The Weekend Reccs by Harrison Satcher. This newsletter delivers original thoughts and curated links into your inbox every weekend that will stoke your curiosity and help you think clearer about life, economics, and politics.
At my day job I am a part of a team at the University of Chicago that applies data, behavioral insights, and entrepreneurial grit to make the world a better place.
In my free time I write this newsletter. Every Sunday it goes out to a community of hundreds of incredible humans. This newsletter has fans of all stripes — techy start-up founders, think tank directors, hoteliers, professors and PhD students, published writers, financiers, and journalists. Whatever you’re in to, we would love you to join us.
If you aren’t sure if this is for you here are some issues that were fan-favorites: why retirement is death, how to think about the most important issue in American politics, your brain on ‘shrooms, what to know before the 2020 election.
