Chicago Cubs versus the New York Yankees today. Hope nobody calls a shot
The Senate kills ethanol. Good idea. But like every good government program, nothing that evil will die. Watch the Corn market ($ZC_F) in the coming weeks. It’s already had a big tumble off the highs. December corn is the big one.
Some academics on the Greek crisis. A lot of people scoff at academics. Sometimes they are nuts. But, I at least listen to economists to hear their train of thought. Cochrane is pretty underrated and brilliant. Gave me my best line, “Governments make a choice, grow or inflate. They always inflate.”

Global warming, and acupuncture. Ancient Chinese secret.

Interesting piece on aggregate demand.
