Touristic Bias by Bryan Caplan of Marginal Revolution. A great review of why Europeans and Americans have the impressions they get when travelling across the Atlantic and why these impressions are misleading.

Dr. Doom: Surprise! Things are bad and I think it's going to get worse. That's what I've become known for saying, I get paid to say it, and besides, I say it smart.

Calculated Risk on Social Security. Hey, fossils, back to work! Stop watching TV and supplement that pension.

How toxic finance created an unstable world: By Wolfgang M√ľnchau. An excellent article on the current predicament.

How will the US deal with the mountain of debt it is accumulating? The Money Game takes a look at the words of one of my favorite economists and bloggers, Arnold Kling.
