[Further Update 11-18-11 Goldman Hartmann
[update 11-17-11: Just In.]
Bloomberg News.

While I am waiting and imagining what pledge Norman Goldman will come up with, I could not settle on anything as a reasonable counter-balance to the Grover Norquist pledge. But while the tactics that Mayor Bloomberg has employed to clear a park are very disturbing and still to be justified, my point is that there will be further disturbances and justifications will be sorted out, as to the power of their argument.

For now maybe we should put a moratorium on individual death penalties until justice is applied to corporate person hoods. But of course that is a bit too fair and balanced, with nuance.

Why I might abandon this blog. Moderation. No pun, but it is a job.

[10-21-11 continued… A rather successful week. Note the jobs pun, re-moderation, technical difficulties…MoveOn(pun)…LIBYA[!](punctuating I Ron Knee[?]) Still rolling…but I will pause…]
[segue? or the point? Participated in a protest and finished watching “debate“]
[The Politics of the Table, and Lib…Ya!]
[Why I might abandon this blog? Not keeping up with the technical requirements…of moderation[*], both in groups or in blogs. The so-called “debate” is an example of group dynamics; editing and moderating a blog, the technical problematics.]
[*] speaking of moderation: apparently the House Speaker’s office needed to answer the phone, as it missed a briefing on the Iraq War. Mission accomplished?

My First Venture
on WordPress. (a ding in the universe)
My Pre-fabrication.(I Heart JOBS!)
And it’s foundation.(I Heart OWS!)

This is different.(What I Couldn’t Say…) Is it really?(Bretton Woods, Past and Present: 4. The Teaching of Economics)

No, not really! (I Heart OWS!)

[Re Vision of previous post:(see lede) Ribble = Ribbing/Riddle]
[Re-visit(upgrade) of First Impressions]

on WordPress.
My Pre-fabrication. And it’s foundation.

This is different. Is it really?

No, not really!


QUESTION: Where does Austrian Economics fit into the real world?
Easier question: Where does Fight of the Century Round Two fit into economics or teaching?
BETTER QUESTION? I am open to suggestions.
What is the best lesson on “free-market” or “libertarian” economics?

MEANWHILE:  I am in the process of reviewing my posts here, as well as reviewing the History of Economic Playgroundhttp://ineteconomics.org/blog/playground interview series, see previous post.  I have viewed the videos without fulling reading the articles, and am now reviewing each of 1 through 4.  I am not sure that I originally viewed them in order or completely avoided the articles, but it turns out that the articles have a further perspective on the interview videos.

Before I weave further,  I decided to take an economic literacy test.  http://www.councilforeconed.org/cel/test/  I take it that missing 1 of 20 is not bad, but I don’t know what it wins me.  See First Impressions.   But the important intersection of threads regards the third link in First Impressions @ineteconomics.org  in the History of Economics Playground.   http://ineteconomics.org/blog/playground ]

The link in question:  http://ineteconomics.org/blog/playground/bretton-woods-past-and-present-4-teaching-economics   For me the video was important, and I needed to take the test to see if it was just me or the article that was problematic.  Actually it might be the subject(teaching), as well as the field(economics) or history that are problematic.  Quote:  “Tests in economic literacy were showing that people who had never taken an introductory course in economics had better results than those who had! ”  I was just curious where a person(myself) having done well in both Macro and Micro-economics, 250 A and B if I recall, would be.
