Bad Timing by Joe Wilson

Barack Obama continues to lie about Iran. Don't take it from me, read someone with expertise on the Middle East, expertise on nuclear weapons, expertise on the IAEA, and who was right on everything he said about Iraq before the invasion.

I Don't Think that Word Means what you Think it Means

DeLong tells us what economics calls for, to chew out Allen Meltzer. Unfortunately for DeWrong, economics does not call for anything. Certain moral theories combined with economics may call for certain things, but economics calls for property rights and subsidies and such as much as astronomy calls for dividing the year into 12 months. Not the only mistake that DeLong makes in the post, but the most egregious in my mind.
