Gordon vs. Gordon on Growth

noreply@blogger.com (Roger Pielke, Jr.) at Roger Pielke Jr.'s Blog - 21 minutes ago
This post is a follow up to the discussion on this blog a few weeks ago of economist Robert Gordon's provocative paper which asked, "Is US economic growth over?". Gordon's paper has been much discussed in the pages and blogs of the *New York Times*, *Washington Post*, *Financial Times* and elsewhere. Remarkably, the wide-ranging discussion took place with no one figuring out that Gordon's claims are in error and based on a selective and non-representative parsing of the data. (The FT did publish a letter of mine, however.) Let's review. Gordon claims that US per capita economic gr... more »

The Ayatollahs are rightfully hated for their religious micro-management of the daily life of the Iranian people. But this is an internal matter. Other nations have no right to pass judgements on Iran's domestic state of affairs. Ron Paul's most basic foreign policy idea should guide U.S. policy towards Iran: mind your own business. There is nothing more annoying than being lectured about life from someone who has his own problems. The same feeling exists among nations when one nation lectures the other.

*de·moc·ra·cy * noun, plural de·moc·ra·cies. government by the people; a form of government in which the supreme power is vested in the *people* and exercised directly by them or by their elected agents under a* free* electoral system. I am sure Greece and Italy would have a problem agreeing with this statement, seeing they both had their prime ministers and governments replaced by Un-elected Technocrats from Europe.

Eponyms everywhere! Who knew? Our most recent list of eponyms was a smash success. It gave rise to at least three subcategories, as I wrote here: - Inventor/creator/discoverer, not genericized.

Compare to pasteurized. - Fictional characters --- Mythological names ----- Biblical names This list is more specific, and more difficult.

Information we strongly believe the public has a right to know. But this has been pushed more and more into the background, instead we only hear about Julian Assange, like he had dinner last night with Lady Gaga. That’s great for him but not much of our interest.

Iran Review *Kourosh Ziabari* Nobel Prize is the most prestigious honor which one may be awarded in his lifetime. The legacy of Alfred Nobel is so matchless and incomparable that more than one century after the first Nobel Prize was awarded, it is still the most exalted and esteemed prize that can be conferred to people who work for the promotion and advancement of sciences and global peace. Many people live their entire life with the dream of winning a Nobel Prize, without revealing this sealed aspiration to anyone. Chemists, physicists, medics, economists, authors, poets and act... more »

Great Video Showing Albert Einstein For The FRAUD He Truly Was!

Northerntruthseeker at Northerntruthseeker - 17 hours ago
In all my years in the false education system including University and College, I was led to believe much like almost everyone else, that Albert Einstein was the "Greatest" scientist that the world has ever known. We all have been brainwashed over the years with the firm belief that Albert Einstein gave us the great gifts of his "Theory Of Relativity", and of course his "E = M x C squared" computation for conversion of matter into energy. But after years of research, I can tell everyone that Albert Einstein was a fraud. The man was a Patent clerk that stole most of his so calle... more »

“Spiky stars and spooky shapes abound in this deep cosmic skyscape. Its well-composed field of view covers about 2 Full Moons on the sky toward the constellation Pegasus. Of course the brighter stars show diffraction spikes, the commonly seen effect of internal supports in reflecting telescopes, and lie well within our own Milky Way galaxy. *Click image for larger size.* The faint but pervasive clouds of interstellar dust ride above the galactic plane and dimly reflect the Milky Way's combined starlight. Known as high latitude cirrus or integrated flux nebulae they are associate... more »

Welfarism 23: CCT, 4Ps and Central Planning

Nonoy Oplas at Government and Taxes - 18 hours ago
More government central planning, more wastes and inefficiencies. This is once more exhibited in the Conditional Cash Transfer (CCT) or Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps) program of the government. My economist friend from UP, Jhiedon Florentino, rode a taxi and engaged the taxi driver to a fruitful conversation. Well, it’s more of probing the mind of one of the average persons in this country on what they think of certain government policies like the CCT. Jhie is down to earth enough to listen to the man’s frank ideas and witty remarks. Then he posted their conversation in... more »

*“Project Cloverleaf: * *Ex-Government Employee Talks About Chemtrails”* by Michael Vincent Anthony "The chemtrail program is also known as “Project Cloverleaf”, and it is very compartmentalized. Even the pilots themselves have no real idea of why they are actually spraying. Chemtrails are a sub-program of the US Navy’s Radio Frequency Mission Planner (RFMP) program called the Variable Terrain Radio Parabolic Equation (VTRPE) – a system for creating 3D battlefield imaging that the US military has been using in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Chet Raymo, “Facing Backwards”

noreply@blogger.com (CoyotePrime) at Running 'Cause I Can't Fly - 18 hours ago
*“Facing Backwards”* by Chet Raymo “Perhaps the greatest problem facing the world today is the disparity of power between rich and poor. Technology (satellite television, the internet, easy international travel) keeps the disparity at front of mind for the oppressed. They turn first of all to religion as an anodyne. After all, what is more empowering than to have God on one's side, and what is more consoling than the promise of paradise while the oppressor burns in hell. There is no shortage of mullahs, preachers, and gurus with agendas of their own ready to whip believers into ... more »

Frontiers of shamelessness: Chuck Lorre hawks his book-form collection of his vanity cards

*You know the old saying, "Shameless is as shameless does." Okay, maybe it's not an old saying, and maybe I'm not even sure what it would mean if it were. But somehow it seems pertinent to Chuck Lorre's collection of his celebrated end-of-show vanity cards -- with, he promises, some new material added.* *by Ken* So here I was just this week bragging about how I was on top of my new-season televiewing. It shouldn't be that tough, really, since it's pretty much all old and returning shows. (I'm casting a wary eye on CBS's * Partners*, though I missed the pilot, and the show is appare... more »

For whom the dog whistle blows

Granted this is one guy with a hideously racist tshirt at one Romney rally and the campaign quietly denounced the shirt, but it's not as if Team Romney hasn't been encouraging this sort of thing right along. Blow that dog whistle at the decibel level of an air raid siren and all the vicious dogs come out. This is not at all an isolated incident. There's been hundreds of instances of this sort all over the country. And then there's the countless local Republican politicians and operatives "accidentally" sending racist emails and making racist "jokes" (and they're very sorry if anyo... more »

Teen suicide rate drops overall but rises for girls

James C Morton at Morton's Musings - 20 hours ago
Overall the rate of teen suicide has dropped over time and fairly significantly. But since teenage boys commit suicide at a far greater rate than girls a significant drop in boys killing themselves swamps a statistically significant increase in girls killing themselves. None of this is to trivialize any suicide but rather to note the problem is complex and what works for one group may not work for another. The rate, for example, is much higher in some groups and some regions than others. Overall for all ages and subgroups the rate seems fairly constant in Canada around 11 in 1... more »
