Nice puff piece on Bloomberg about Bernanke and the economy.  Basically asserting the cart is pushing the horse up the hill, when in fact Bernanke is continually adding weight to the cart by diverting money to non-productive activities, propping up failed businesses and promoting bad investments through artificially low interest rates. To the extent the cart is moving forward at all at this point it’s entirely due to the extraordinary capacity of humans to adapt and succeed in adverse environments.

This makes some sense. When resources are scarce the less active should fare better.

Maybe it’s just me, but this seems inherently at odds with informed consent.

Lefties more likely to look before they leap. I knew that.
