Sharapova made her professional breakthrough in 2004 when, at age 17, she upset two-time defending champion and top seed Serena Williams in the 2004 Wimbledon final for her first Grand Slam singles title. She entered the top ten of the WTA Rankings with this win. Despite not winning a major in 2005, Sharapova briefly held the number one ranking, and reached three Grand Slam semifinals, losing to the eventual champion each time. She ultimately won her second major at the 2006 US Open defeating then-World No. 1 Amélie Mauresmo in the semifinals and World No. 2 Justine Henin in the final. Sharapova's 2007 season was plagued ...
Pajamas Media » Donald Berwick's Motto? Rationing for Thee, but ...
If you’re like most Americans, you had probably never heard of Donald Berwick before July 7, when President Obama installed him as Administrator of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). And, unless you’re a health policy wonk, the news that Obama circumvented the normal Senate confirmation process with a recess appointment probably elicited no response beyond a briefly raised eyebrow and a stifled yawn. But this CMS decision deserves another look. Dr. Berwick has been granted the power to reach out and touch you in ways undreamed of by higher profile appointees like Elena Kagan. Whether you’re paying attention or ... market research, surveys and trends
A Quick Comment (to Stephen Williamson) « Modeled Behavior
If you haven’t had the chance to visit his blog, Stephen Williamson writes quite technical analysis from a “new monetarist” perspective. He (sometimes) harshly criticizes new Keynesians for their extreme focus on sticky prices and short-term nominal interest rates, and has a recently taken to criticizing Keynes Krugman’s analysis, sometimes more effectively than others. In his recent post , he takes Krugman’s recent column in the NYT to task for being very sure about deflation, and what the Fed can do going forward to compensate. I rather like the Krugman column, so I’m not very ... market research, surveys and trends


Econbrowser: What Do Business Economists Think the ARRA Accomplished?
survey of forecasters, the results indicate that instead of the 0.15% growth rate recorded in 09Q4 y/y growth, the growth rate would have been -0.93%. For 2010Q4 Q4/Q4 growth, they forecast 3% growth, and in the absence of the ARRA, they would have predicted 2.2% growth. Posted by Menzie Chinn at March 15, 2010 09:08 PM digg this | reddit I'm curious to know how they can accurately evaluate the impact of something that didn't happen. I mean, the stimulus DID happen, but how can you really evaluate what would have happened had that money NOT been injected in the economy?

The Stock Market Advantage
The Tactical Timing System (TTS) has been painstakingly developed, refined and back-tested. In a real world account (the SMA Portfolio), TTS returned 5.0% per year versus the S&P 500 return of -0.9% per year over the 10 year period ended December 31, 2009. M att Hougan, at Index Universe, recently wrote about how he was able to assemble a widely diversified portfolio on the cheap back in 2007, and how it has become cheaper still. In June 2007, the expense ratio on Hougan's portfolio was 0.16 percent. Recently, he was able to replicate the portfolio with an expense ratio of a mere 0.125 percent.

Politico's theory: Liberal bloggers don't care if Dems sustain large losses ...
I'm probably a sucker for biting on this attack on the liberal blogosphere from Poiltico top-dog editors John Harris and Jim VandeHei, but this is so divorced from reality that it really shouldn't go unanswered: The liberal blogosphere grew in response to Bush. But it is still a movement marked by immaturity and impetuousness -- unaccustomed to its own side holding power and the responsibilities and choices that come with that. So many liberals seem shocked and dismayed that Obama is governing as a self-protective politician first and a liberal second, even though that is also how he campaigned. The liberal blogs cheer ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Don't Let Fed Economists Tell You Otherwise…
by Kartik Athreya criticizing the economics blogosphere is making the rounds, and I am late commenting on it (links to other comments at the end), so here are a few quick responses. Let me start by noting that the essay is not even digitized in a convenient form — it is a pdf — and to me that says a lot about the writers knowledge of how the digital world works. Why not make it available in a convenient form (unless the goal is to overcome the fact that federal reserve work cannot be copyrighted by making it difficult to reproduce)?  (This is an irritation more generally, and the Kansas City Fed is the ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Jankovic vs Federer, what's the deal? - Yahoo! Answers
Fed is right to say it's weird that someone gets to be #1 without winning any majors. I don't see it as an personal attack on Jankovic, it's just a general criticism of the state of women's tennis today. IMHO, he's entitled to give his opinions. As for Djokovic, his "thing" of giving up whenever he's sure he'll lose is an outrage and Fed, as the president of the ATP Players' Council (just a little something that has absolutely nothing to do with this subject: who else LOVES that Rafa's his VP?), has not only the right, but the obligation to say ...
How to turn from a non-feeling robot, to an all loving, all ...
Since an early age, I have been a rather "unfeeling" person. By that, I mean that I rarely feel emotions. I *have* the emotion, but I don't *feel* it. For example, recently I was at the dentists. I was petrified. They put the little thing on the end of my finger to keep an eye on my pulse, and the nurse had to call the anaesthetist (I have to be knocked out to have the treatment, or I can't handle it) in to check. I don't recall what my pulse was, but it was way higher than it should have been. I also had sweaty palms and a dry mouth, etc, but I felt perfectly calm. Neither the nurse or the anaesthetist ...
