    Things are not always as they appear….

    Is the “A” square the same shade of grey as the “B” square?

    revisions in novembers jobs report may show that Jack Welch’s conspiracy theorists (‘welchers?’), were wrong (and idiotic).

    ‘Beyond that, if Obama cooked the numbers, he did a lousy job. The improvement in the unemployment rate sounds good, but on the other hand, the economy created only 114,000 jobs in September, which is a weak showing that’s way below the levels of the previous two months. The economy needs at least 200,000 new jobs each month just to keep up with population growth, so fudging it at 114,000 is like erasing the real grade on your report card and giving yourself a C. ‘

    A very thorough piece explaining the current push for ‘regionalism’ in Ohio, where suburbs of the larger cities are being asked to share the burdens of the latter’s economic issues.

    Since I live in one of the cities mentioned in this article, I know exactly what the author is getting at. It was at the heart of our last mayoral race.

    Better late than never. I’m reading Blue Ocean Strategy . It might sound like the name of an edgy rock band but its idea s central to the fragmented world we live in.

    Who titled this graph?

  6. Bill in SF says:

    Auto Dealers Whine That Tesla Stores Are Illegal

    Is it like walking into an Apple Store? … or Game Changer!

  7. Joe Friday says:

    Do We Need Subsidies for Solar and Wind Power?

    That’s the wrong question. The correct question is:

    Do we need subsidies for oil, coal, timber, and gas ?

    This is looking more and more like a problem with the gov’t and not the comaoneis that make, monitor, distribute these drugs and pay lobbyists to decrease their regulatory burden, the Wall Street Journal believes.
