Two Points for the Post

The Washington Post has two editorials worth reading this morning. In the first, Sebastian Mallaby throws some cold water on the Cramer-style hype surrounding sub-prime credit markets. Mallaby recalls how junk bonds caused a similar stir in the mid 90s, but have since more than tripled their total market value and are now considered boring, respectable investments.

Who cares about economics? I'm just trying to win the union vote!

In their rush to rail against free trade during the AFL-CIO debate, Democratic presidential candidates simultaneously pandered to unions and illustrated their unabashed ignorance of economics.

What Do Kids Know?

According to the Journal, when it comes to economics, the answer is: more than you might think. On a test given by the National Assessment of Educational Progress, the scores this year were surprisingly strong:

Kucinich is a dead horse...but Hillary and Barack keep beating him

At the AFL-CIO Democratic Debate Tuesday, Presidential "hopeful" Dennis Kucinich called himself the "Sea-Biscuit" of the presidential race. He said it was because he was an unlikely champion, but I think its really because, like his campaign, Sea-Biscuit has been dead for a looooooong time. Or maybe its because, like Kucinich, Sea-Biscuit was also a prominent socialist.

Were In Ur TeeVee, Doin Ur Economicz

I didn't get to watch the AFL-CIO-hosted Democratic debate the other night, but from the reports, looks like I didn't miss much. Greg Mankiw, however, points us to this extremely useful--and rather entertaining--post by James Pethokoukis at Capital Commerce detailing the loopy economic ideas that popped up at the debate. For instance:

There Ain't No Such Thing As A...

In the New York Times, Dave Leonhardt takes on the myth of "More care! Less money!" A focus on preventative care, he explains, will make people healthier -- but, contrary to what's being claimed by many liberal health-care advocates, there's little reason to believe it will cost less.
