- Does the Fed Really Control Interest Rates? – “The Federal Reserve does not have full control over interest rates, they only have influence, that influence changes over time.”
- The U.S. Needs More i-Side Economics – “The misallocation of capital is one reason the recovery is stuck between lack and luster.” This is a good article by Andy Kessler. Kessler is an interesting person. He is not an economist, rather, he was a successful tech hedge fund manager and is now a successful angel investor. I highly recommend his books: Running Money : Hedge Fund Honchos, Monster Markets and My Hunt for the Big Score, How We Got Here: A Slightly Irreverent History of Technology and Markets, and The End of Medicine: How Silicon Valley (and Naked Mice) Will Reboot Your Doctor

- Virtual House Arrest Ordered for Minors in East St. Louis – “Angered by the recent murders of four young people, the mayor announced today that police are going to impose drastic new measures to keep teens off the streets.” As the progress of the police state continues in the US, we lament that the immortal words of Benjamin Franklin have been forgotten: “They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.“
