Economics and Social Policy I

Welcome to the first edition of economics and social policy.

Steve Faber presents Government Spending – Can It Be Reigned In? Should It? posted at DebtBlog.

Michael McCullough (Stingray) presents Al Gore and some inconvenient truths about global warming posted at Christianity and mental illness, saying, "Al Gore omitted a lot of incovenient truths in his movie "An Inconvenient Truth." This article discusses several of them and how they refute the notion of global warming being caused by humans."

Tom Blumer presents » Weekend Question 1: Why Are We Discussing “Means Testing” Government Benefit Programs? (Social Security) posted at BizzyBlog, saying, "First in a series of 3 posts on how government programs should not be further means tested, because they (Social Security, Medicare, and College aid) are already extensively means-tested."

Starling presents The Health of Nations posted at The Business of America is Business.

I’m chipping in on everybody’s favorite corporate bad guy, Wal*Mart, on The Boring Made Dull.

And some posts, more focused on Business / Career issues:

Pride of place goes to Matt Inglot - this was the first post submitted to the Economics and Social Policy Carnival: Web Hosting - An Illustration of the Dangers of No Entry Barriers posted at Matt Inglot.

Katie presents Are you climbing to the top when there is no top? posted at Aridni, and Saturday Strategy: life is a game; do you get it? - Aridni posted at Aridni.
