Assorted Links (8/31/2009)

Here’s a list of articles that I have been reading today (organized by topic):

Economics

Professor Mulligan notes, “This article explains how NY schools are required to hire from a pool of senior teachers who must be paid more than entry level teachers. In effect, schools are required to pay more than the market clearing wage. The result: teachers are unemployed and classes go without teachers.”

New York Times: “How a worldwide “social epidemic” of ideas is supporting renewed confidence in the economy.”

Energy Policy

Wall Street Journal: “The Obama administration is using its brass knuckles to support Latin American thugs.”

Foreign Policy

Wall Street Journal: “Demand in the developing world trumps new technology.”

Health Care Reform
