Carnival of the Capitalists is up this week at Ashish's Niti.
I liked Brian Gongol's link to great human disasters that could have been averted by a better understanding of economics. I'd add the tsunami disaster to that list - follow market-oriented policies and end up like Thailand, or follow kleptocratic policies and end up like Indonesia or Sri Lanka.
Hey Brian: how about a list of potential disasters averted by quick use of a little economics. I'll start you out with 9/11 - our financial system did not collapse because the folks at the Federal Reserve knew this would cause a lot of people to want to shift towards more liquid assets, so they made sure a ton of cash was available for people who wanted it.
