Blog Review 660


It really isn't all that wise to do this in an election, not now we've all got the internet.

Time to put those Chilean accusations about Milton Friedman to rest, don't you think?

Tangentially related to Friedman: his Ph.D. thesis was on this very subject, the way that the AMA, by controlling access to the profession, keeps incomes high.

So the SEC bans naked short selling. Slightly odd when even lefty economists want to point to the value of speculation and speculators.

Which comes first? Wealth or the abolition of backward attitudes?

This is a little strong: demanding a dose of reality from the glossy magazines.

And finally, yes, this is indeed good PR.
