Review: Oh Myyy!: There Goes the Internet

Cross-posted from The Evolution of Reason I just finished Oh Myyy!: There Goes the Internet. An interesting book from George Takei about the internet and social media. This fairly quick read is a great look at the social web through a unique perspective that the vast majority of us will never have the opportunity to … Continue reading


BRAD MERRIMAN – EDITOR-IN-CHIEF – There is no one ready to call this photo fixed, but no one can confirm the photo as genuine. On Thursday after the bombing president Obama and the first lady visited MANY victims of the Boston bombing. IF and that’s a big IF, she actually visited this guy, for one, … Continue reading

Will There Be American Justice In Boston

As we change from week to week and the Boston Marathon Bombing moves from shock, horror and confusion to action, identification, and justice.  It is the nature of freedom and justice, American justice, with which we must concern ourselves.

April 29: An Historic Day of Budgeteering

An interesting juxtaposition exists between April 29, 1909 and April 29, 2009 in the realm of budget history.

“Carried Interest” is Not the Problem Everyone Wants It To Be

John Steele Gordon’s recent Op-Ed in the WSJ opened with the following observation: “The question of how to fairly and equitably tax capital gains has been a political problem since the modern personal-income tax was adopted in 1913.” Being a business/financial historian, he gives an adequate overview of the history of capital gains and how … Continue reading
