[Patterico's Pontifications] Reducing the single highest single year deficit in the history of our country by half is hardly an accomplishment, and certainly not the promise that he made. In addition, you dishonestly chose to use OMB numbers that vary dramatically from others, and again, are based on a set of assumption that are less likely to occur than the Cubs winning the World Series.

[Idea of the Day] Things requiring longer attention spans would be cheaper ”” they might even be free, and the higher fixed costs of producing them would be covered by the higher sales of the short attention span products. Single TV episodes would be more expensive to purchase than whole seasons, in the same way that a six-pack of Oreos at the gas station is more expensive, per cookie, than a whole tray at the grocery store.

[DailyFinance] Third, aided by a weak U.S. dollar, U.S. exports should rebound nicely in the quarters ahead, critics say, further boosting U.S. GDP growth. Emerging market demand for such items as construction and mining equipment, jet engines, and infrastructure materials will be strong, not only creating jobs in the U.S., but possibly eliminating the U.S. trade deficit during the next expansion.

[The Oil Drum - Discussions about Energy and Our Future] Not to wade into the reality (or lack thereof) of GM's figure, one thing is clear: the roll-out of more plug-in vehicles, along with the rising generation from variable sources such as wind, will make smart-metering all the more essential. If you can plug-in your car to a smart-metered system that will only charge the batteries when, say, the cost is less than $0.06/kwh, you'll have a significant advantage over flat-rate metering.

[Safehaven] I am particularly sensitive to losses in total jobs, having lost my own job so many times, and ALMOST lost it many times before that, since I seem to always get jobs with anal-retentive perfectionist Stalinists who want me to show up at the job every day, like it is some kind of "crime" to stay up too late drinking and partying with my hoodlum friends, and thus accidentally oversleep by a few hours every few days.
