Response to Krugman on My Canada Study, by David Henderson

I think this qualifies as a cockroach idea (zombies just keep shambling along, whereas sometimes you think you've gotten rid of cockroaches, but they keep coming back.) I thought we had disposed of all this four years ago. But nooooo.This is from Paul ... [Published EconLog - Sep 21 2014]

There is nothing tautological about market monetarism, by Scott Sumner

Bill Woolsey directed me to a post by Kevin Grier (commenting on Lars Christensen): OK, so the first graph is the path of Nominal income (PY) relative to trend. The second is the path of real income (Y) and the third is the path of prices (P). Nothing ... [Published EconLog - Sep 21 2014]

Saving Money with One Income, by Art Carden

What's wrong with Hong Kong? (Too much government), by Scott Sumner

Scotland and the irrational media, by Alberto Mingardi

Scotland won't secede: 54% voted for 'no', 46% voted 'yes' . The composure with which the losers conceded tells you something about this referendum. The secessionists had remarkably little complaint with the state of the Union. They did not push for ... [Published EconLog - Sep 19 2014]

Quotes

...) She asked me how old Emanuel is. "57," I replied. "How can he know at age 57 how he'll feel at age 75?" she asked. I had to grant her point
...At best, Gordon looks at the effects of monetary policy. That's at best. But his claim that "the Bank of Canada reduced interest rates by more than 500 basis points" is probably false
Try it in the abstract without the sacred labels. "The fall in XY caused the fall in X and the fall in Y"
Anarchy in the UK? Not so much. Scottish voters have decided to stay in the UK, and Justin Wolfers calls this " a loss for pollsters and a win for betting markets ." I agree: betting markets produce a much higher signal-to-noise ratio than polls
