Berkshire to GS: "I Got $5 Billion, but - The Big Picture
Tonight's Goldman Sachs/Warren Buffett deal is a classic example of our post 2001 news: Looks good as a headline, is godawful underneath. Of course, futures popped on the announcement. The WSJ subhead read "Move by Famed Investor Amid Crisis Seen as Vote of Confidence in Banking System." Puh-leeze. Vote of confidence? Hardly. Doubtful. It is merely an opportunistic deal, and probably a damn good one, for Berkshire Hathaway (BRK). On the other hand, for Goldman Sachs, it is a very expensive deal. If you delve beneath the headlines, you see that Warren is not so much making a vote of confidence as he is extracting pound of ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Why Republicans hate Social Security
That's right! The federal program that has proven funding and comfort for millions of Americans in their old age is 75 today. Conservatives of all stripes HATE SS because it shows that the government can do some good. And plenty have fought Social Security through the decades, including my late grandfather, who was a minor Republican official and absolutely despised FDR. The program is so electrified with conflict that it has been called a "third rail" in politics. Now comes Paul Krugman, one of my favorite economist-columnists and I am sure, one of yours, too, with his assessment about the lies being spread about ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

The Economics of Financial Domination | Ask MetaFilter
A comment on AskMefi some time ago talked about financial dominatrices, and I've been fascinated by their business ever since. From what I could gather, all they have to do is put up a website saying "You worship me! Give me money and stuff because I know you want to!" - and it works. One site had her Internet bills paid off. Many ask for regular tithes and offerings, and have application processes. How does this work? From what I could tell, the buyers don't actually get anything back for their cash - it's up to the dominatrix if she wants to give them something or not. (Usually they don't bother.) It's ...
