Sweep the Leg, Johnny

This is the best thing I've found on the internet yet.

Thomas Friedman, horse's ass

Exemplified perfectly here. Money quote:

One-party autocracy certainly has its drawbacks. But when it is led by a reasonably enlightened group of people, as China is today, it can also have great advantages.

Crickets, Again

I've been very quiet around here for a bunch of reasons. I'm taking classes to finish my degree. A little tough with two kids and trying to keep a business afloat. I've also spent most free time on facebook.
I'm also over-doing it with reading. A current reading list will be up soon as well
I've had thoughts large and small (mostly small) on much of the goings on in the world. I hope to add more here over time, so here's a new post.
A very decent article by Paul Krugman. How over-simplifies many facets of both Keynes and what he refers to as "freshwater" economists and the article is more than a little tendentious (which, for Krugman, is a fantastic improvement over his quotidian obnoxiousness).
I'll let the article speak for itself.
Nod to Greg Mankiw.
