Economics and Social Policy VI


Welcome to the July 30, 2006 edition of economics and social policy. I'm running late today; we celebrated Boring Daughter #3's birthday, so this carnival is even more "insta" than ususal.

Michael McCullough (Stingray) discusses tax cuts and increasing government revenue: Surprising Jump in Tax Revenues Is Curbing Deficit posted at Christianity and mental illness. Key quote: "Tax cuts spurring economic growth should be surprising in the same sense that hitting your head with a hammer hurts. Only dolts living in a fantasy land should think otherwise".


Steve Faber wonders Senator Clinton, What are You Thinking? on DebtBlog. As normal for Senators, little or no thinking occured.


John Rozewicki presents How Building a Giant Mansion for Yourself is Better Than Charity; Biltmore Estate posted at Supreme Narcissism, saying, "An article pointing out the significant benefits that can arise from what is painted in society as being fruitless; building a giant mansion."


Tim King presents Does Google Think It's Bigger Than the Market? posted at J. Timothy King’s Blog. Short answer, Yes.


Brandon Peele presents AR: Namaste Economics posted at GT. I'm not sure if this is satire, or simply wishful thinking and naivte on steroids.


That concludes this edition. Submit your blog article to the next edition of Economics and Social Policy using our carnival submission form.
