==> Tell me this isn’t the funniest headline for a real study. I have known this about male economists for a while. Women should not emulate them. No amount of career success is worth your soul, ladies!
==> I was googling a topic and stumbled across this National Review article from back in January, where I warned conservatives about a carbon tax. I didn’t remember seeing it, though my colleagues at IER tell me we circulated the link when it ran. Anyway, in case you forgot it as much as I did, here ya go.
==> In this post Scott Sumner says it’s been “smooth sailing” for the Danes, who aren’t afraid to establish a currency peg and inflate to the gates of Hell if need be. Scott doesn’t mention that the Danish central bank’s assets are up 50% year-over-year, amidst this “smooth sailing.” (I looked it up but don’t have a link for you. Their website has some stuff in English if you’re curious.) He still thinks he was right about Switzerland; they dropped his perfectly sound strategy for no good reason. He’s still right. (In contrast, when I say there was no reason for governments to abandon the gold standard in the 1930s, I really am right.)
==> My FEE article on the euro and Greece, from back in 2012, has found new legs. I think it holds up pretty well.
==> I have a new post at IER on the British Columbia carbon tax and “leakage.” Cool Excel chart at the end!
