Music & Links
For whatever reason--I think it's because I watched Forrest Gump with friends last weekend, which has a Creedence Clearwater Revival song in it--I'm listening to a whole bunch of Vietnam-era music. James Brown, Rolling Stones, Don McLean...you get the picture.
Links to some good reading this weekend:
- The anti-Keynesian opposition goes into a panicky retreat, reports The Economist's "Democracy in America" blog. (HT: Paul Krugman)
- Josh Hendrickson of Ole Miss takes Tyler Cowen and other people who don't think carefully about the role of the financial sector in the larger economy to task.
- Why Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood should resign--this is only the latest incident/proof of his inability.
- A TED talk which reveals the insight of Clay Shirky's idea of Coase's floor dropping through the Internet, and how it enables decentralized cooperation.
