* Stimulus Tracker: CNNMoney clocks it at $4.7 trillion in total stimulus so far. It’s a neat little graphic breaking it all down. (Hint: Most of it is via the Fed.)

* What really made me skeptical about the White House’s “support” for Bernanke and Geithner, was this anonymous email that uses the word “honestly” twice. Sort of like when Obama says, “Let me be clear,” which I am pretty sure means, “The following is false…”

* Jeff Kvistad sends this WSJ op ed that epitomizes our Keynesian, inflationist age. Note the part at the end where now “central bank independence” means “willingness to print money like crazy.” (Recall that it used to mean the opposite.)

* Rich Wilcke sends along this very entertaining journal article [.pdf] on Ag Econ (really!).
