Why I’m Bullish on the News - POLITICO Magazine
Go maximum mass or maximum specific. [...] News organizations are also going to have to mix and match revenue models. I see eight obvious ones: advertising, subscriptions, premium content, events, cross-media promotion, crowdfunding, micropayments and philanthropy. [...] Today, this same science culture, this civilization of engineers and math, is again on the rise. And to many, it feels like it’s running away with the future. [...] The point is that, for people who aren’t deep into math and science and technology, it is going to get far harder to understand the world going forward. || + + +

The Cost of Food and Energy across Consumers :: Daniel Carroll :: Economic Trends :: 03.14.11 :: Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland
For those astutely wondering why food and energy expenditures are a larger fraction of total expenditures than of total income for the bottom 20 percent, there is a much higher fraction of households in this quintile which may be using savings and credit markets to consume above their annual income. Likely categories are the unemployed, business owners with temporary losses, students living on loans, and retirees drawing down their nest eggs.

Global Worker Surge Was Behind Recession - Real Time Economics - WSJ
A new paper published by the National Bureau of Economic Research, by Ravi
Jagannathan, Mudit Kapoor and Ernst Schaumburg, argues imbalances caused by a jump in the world’s labor force are the key reason for the global recession.

“The large increase in the developed world’s labor supply, triggered by geo-political events and technological innovations, is the major underlying cause of the global macro economic imbalances that led to the great recession,” the paper said. “The inability of existing institutions in the U.S. and the rest of the world to cope with this shock set the stage for the great recession.”
As workers from developing nations moved to compete on the economic stage, the money they made and the world’s inability to absorb that new wealth helped fuel the crisis.
The paper’s authors warn that attempts to reform banking oversight and the downsides of ample liquidity won’t fix the real problem facing the global economy.
