Items of interest and curiousity, as detailed by an economics professor. Specializing in macroeconomic topics. Please note that the focus on The Wall Street Journal is because that is required reading for my classes.

I'm a little dated on this post, but we discussed in class on November 25th that people will knock the high growth the economy achieved in the third quarter. I mentioned that their primary concern will be that this will fuel inflation. Lo and behold, just that argument showed up
on the front page of the Money and Investing
section of The Wall Street Journal
on December 1st.
Conrad Black is still in the news, although that news item has now lost its cache. Anyway, it turns out the reason that he wrote the op-ed piece about Roosevelt in the first place was that he has a big (1300 pages) new book out about his. So, it was just a shameless plug.
Nothing posted after this post will appear on the ECON 3020 final exam.
