I’d like to introduce IRD’s new tradition: Juicy Links. We’ll be sharing articles from throughout the week that we found thought provoking, helpful, or disturbing. All these will be broken down into “Juicy,” “Spicy,” and “Rotten.” The views and analyses are not always IRD’s own, but they are worth engaging. Welcome to your weekend.
