Assorted Links (11/24/2009)

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


  • Obamanomics, by Jeffrey Miron

“Harvard economics guru beaks down Obamas’ income redistribution plan.”

Health Care Reform

“Joe Lieberman is a party apostate on health care.”

“Like all great public issues, the health care debate is fundamentally about values, about whether we have a moral preference for vitality or security.”

Highly Recommended

“How FDR tried, and failed, to change a national holiday.”

“A chronicle (written in 1620) of the Pilgrims’ arrival at Plymouth, as recorded by Nathaniel Morton, keeper of the records of Plymouth Colony, based on the account of William Bradford, sometime governor thereof.”

Public Policy

“Funding a down payment with the credit increases the odds the buyer will default.”

Risk & Uncertainty

“Nurturing a fragile economic recovery into a durable expansion requires policies that restore public confidence and reassure investors, risk-takers and employers. The Democratic agenda is doing precisely the opposite, which is how you get subpar growth and fewer new jobs.”
