  • Over at the NYT Economix blog: noting that the Fed’s powers are finite and looking at the linkages between inequality, technology, and education.
  • Highlighting a presentation I gave on recent fiscal policy and its impact on the economy — and the people in it.
  • Popping off across the pond to London, outlining some thoughts on the persistent slog, and giving some random thoughts and notices upon my return.
  • Delving into the discussion of secular stagnation and the impact of negative real rates.

Music: a swingin’ Sunday musical interlude from tenor sax man Harry Allen.

    A ‘Gross Receipts Tax” used by several states would be much simpler than the contortions of Senator Baucus and others. ‘Revenue neutral’ is politics, but creating the rules and regulations as well as administration could be difficult.

    I prefer simplicity. Gross receipts, either of US only or US plus part of non-US earnings would be simpler to administrate and like VATs, easy to modify.
