Read Stuff, You Should

Happy Birthday to Aaron McGruder, 38.

And some good stuff:

1. Brad DeLong on core vs. headline inflation. Just in case anyone doesn't believe it.

2. Nice Amy Fried post about whether politicians actually know what their constituents want.

3. "The Awesomeness of Awesome Americans." Eric Rauchway.

4. Avengers blogging: Was Scarlett Johansson wearing a gorilla suit?

5. And a nice piece by the great Christina Kahrl -- no Giants fan she -- on Buster Posey.


  1. DeLong talks about pegging the dollar to volatile assets as if asset bubbles aren’t largely caused by monetary policy in the first place.

  2. 2) "Since our Senators don’t really know —after all, state-wide polls are rare —they are always making judgments about what they think is best."

    This is because govt. does too much for any voter to track, including politics-obsessed liberals who get paid to follow this stuff. Senators guess-vote the same way that smart liberals guess-vote. It's the basic reason to shrink govt. gun pointing: there's little incentive or ability to get democracy right.
