- I occasionally post links on the blog’s Facebook page, which also get pushed to my Twitter feed [note that if you have ‘liked’ the FB page, you may need to adjust your settings to make sure that you actually see posts in your feed, or get notifications]. Last month, there was a story from Marketplace about movie ticket prices and revenue that would be great for talking about elasticity, and NPR had a behavioral econ story about technology and tipping.
