Economics and Social Policy VII

Welcome to the August 6, 2006 edition of economics and social policy. It's time to feed the inner econo-geek.

Lee Hilton tosses in A Thought on Business on LeeZilla, saying, "Thoughts on everything, from the head of a geek." A new blog - worth a look, there are some additonal posts that may prove to be worth your time.

goldguru presents Consumer Prices Down 50% Over Past 5 Years! posted at Gold Stock Picks. It's not the spam post I originally thought. Having some Goldbug tendancies... but no actual activity.... just remember, commodity prices go both ways.

Tom Blumer presents » Voting with Their Feet, International Edition: Irish High Techs, and the Rest of the Country, Are Smiling posted at BizzyBlog, saying, "Highlights the success of low-tax Ireland in promoting economic growth, encouraging high-tech companies to locate, and encouraging smart people from other countries to emigrate. An after-post comment points to a strong national education effort, while an update points out that all is not roses on immigration." No, and all is not roses on immigration or education stateside, either.

Jack Yoest presents Sen. Frist in the best possible light: Senator Bill Frist Knows How to Sell posted at Jack Yoest, saying, "Messaging and Legislating. Stephen Clouse recently said that it is not enough to have good ideas, an advocate must persuade, must sell the idea. Frist knows how to sell.

Steve Rucinski was hosting Small Business Trends Radio yesterday with Dawn Rivers Baker. She was concerned that Congress was not addressing affordable healthcare for small businesses. And that our elected officials had legislation bottled up.

She was making sense. So Your Business Blogger decided to get some answers." IMO, Sen. Frist has been part of an underperforming Republican majority. His run for the White House will certainly be a tough sell....

That concludes this edition. Submit your blog article to the next edition of Economics and Social Policy using our carnival submission form. Past posts and future hosts can be found on our blog carnival index page.
