Hey look, number crunching and music stuff all in one...
So what does popular music look like this week? You can see the current Billboard Hot 100 chart here, and you can see an overview of this data project here. The basic idea is as follows: below is a…

I like when economics makes the world make sense.  :)
In case you haven’t heard, Adele has a new album titled 25 coming out. (If this refers to you, let me know and I will send help to get you out from that rock you are under.) Now we’re b...

In which I rant about consumers not wanting to be fooled but then responding negatively when they stop getting fooled.
So remember that time when JCPenney tried to stop BSing its customers with artificially high prices and constant sales? In case you forgot, it didn’t go so well. Now we have another attempt t...

Putting my SoundScan subscription to good use...
Hey, remember this? I post this not because I am dreaming of quitting my job (or, more accurately, one of my million or so jobs), but because guess who got a subscription to Nielsen SoundScan? That...

Well now I'm going to spend my weekend re-reading Player Piano and thinking about how we can do better...
Here, fixed that for you… I’ve written about this supposed dystopian nightmare before- the real problem isn’t that we can create a lot of stuff without taking up a lot of people&#...

Which gains in productivity over the last 100 years have led to an increase in leisure?

EDIT: never mind; you touch on that in the post. Also, +1 for the Vonnegut reference.

I guess it's not going to surprise anyone that I'm essentially describing a retailing arms race...

Richard Thaler has a new book- you should read it, no matter how much John Cochrane whines about it.  :)

I can get to your homepage but cannot access any of the other areas without getting an error stating that "The page you tried to access does not exist on this server."  I'd love to see the additional information you have to offer.  Please advise.

Just a reminder that sometimes things seem to not make sense because you don't know enough to understand them...though other times things just don't make sense.
The release of the latest FOMC minutes reminds me that this needs to exist: I suppose for now some text commentary will have to do. In case you haven’t noticed, Dilbert has been pretty on poi...

economy in an intelligent view,
 
(the economic cycle)
http://www.cnbc.com/2015/09/14/nobel-prize-winner-shiller-warns-of-market-bubble.html
 
with due respect to all intelligent economists.
today’s economic cycle is not normal in nature.  why? simple, interest rates is totally captive by the u.s. and or global markets.  and this is absolutely wrong, not right, not correct.   but why?  simple, zero rates is losing the american economy (u.s. economy) trillions and trillions of dollars that are badly, desperately, severely, gravely, painfully, deeply, truly needs.  now, raising this rates will surely and definitely starts the u.s. markets and precisely the world economy to react, pulling down the unstable economies of the whole
world to jeopardy.  which one would you prefer?  thanks’
