As some of you likely know, I am the economics guide for About.com, so I write articles and blog there in addition to writing here and a few other places. (In general, I try to pick and choose what is appropriate for each site.) You may have noticed that I do list recent material from About.com on the left sidebar, but I feel like that’s easy to overlook (and it’s pretty much invisible to RSS subscribers). I do post a lot of that content on Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr, but I wanted to give you some highlights here as well. So here are the highlights from the last week or so:
- How a Little Data Can Go a Long Way, Inflation Edition – or, how the inflation that the media keeps complaining about still has bogeyman status.
- The Broken-Window Fallacy, Climate Change Edition… – just because climate change creates jobs doesn’t mean that it is good for the economy.
- A Friendly Reminder That There’s No Econ 101 Requirement for Politicians… – nope, that’s not why markets responded negatively to the Federal Reserve’s June statement.
