The Economics of the Estate Tax
      This analysis examines the arguments for and against the federal estate tax and concludes that the estate tax generates costs to taxpayers, the economy and the environment that far exceed any potential benefits that it might arguably produce.       This paper documents the extensive costs associated with the federal estate tax. Specifically, the report finds: The existence of the estate tax this century has reduced the stock of capital in the economy by approximately $497 billion, or 3.2 percent.

4 Funds With a Hefty Stake in Gold
continue to flee equities in search of a safe haven, some have flocked to hard assets like gold. Mutual funds with heavy exposure to gold have benefited. On Friday, gold prices stretched to new highs, with gold delivery for August settling at $1,258.30 an ounce after reaching as high as $1,263.70. The price jump is fueling speculation over how long gold will continue to shine and how well the commodity might serve the funds that hold it for the rest of the year.

As emission trading policies begin to encompass more diverse actors and extend over greater time frames, decision makers are looking beyond "grandfathering" toward new allocation methods, particularly ones that adjust over time. We will analyze three approaches to allocating permits: (1) grandfathering permits based on historic emissions or production; (2) auctioning, with revenues retained by government; and (3) updating allocations based on a recent-year activity, in particular "output-based" allocations and tradable performance standards. The investigators will evaluate these approaches according to three criteria: ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics

Slashdot | Programming Language Specialization Dilemma
Spend a couple of months learning C#. You can bash microsoft all you want, but most of the job postings (at least around here) are for .Net/C#. In todays economy, if you want a job, you need to know what employers want, not so much what you want. Parent is dead on. As for C#, it's a rival to both Java and C++ (mostly for non-games). The problem of course is it's a MS language. I would recommend that any SlashDot reader go with Java or C++ over C# because they are better documented, more standards compliant, cross platform (Mono is nice and all but it's no substitute for MS C# from what I hear) and Open ...

Since September of 2003 there has been an industry wide crack down on the practice of mutual fund market timing and a number of mutual funds have paid large settlements to the SEC to settle charges that they allowed market timing that was not in the best interest of mutual fund shareholders. The particular angle that I am researching is the extent to which mutual fund market timing was an ...
