Just read your article regarding physician salaries, and the need to reduce them. Just dropped by to say that you have absolutely no idea what you are talking about. Do you have any idea how much medical school costs in France/Germany, etc. vs the US? Do you have any idea about the time commitment and sacrifice?

Apple's market cap is now bigger than every listed company in Spain, Ireland, Portugal, and Greece combined. ANd I think it's poised to get way bigger!

+Andrew Lieffring I guess we'll just have to call them gipsi instead. It even gets the order right: Greece Ireland Portugal Spain Italy.
I have no doubt soon we'll be calling them simply "The Eurozone".

Don't go for penile enlargement without studying up on the efficient markets hypothesis first. You might die!

Niall Ferguson seems to aim at being the Paul Krugman of the right.  Good on him if he can do it - but it's a hard row, Krugman delivers a phenomenal volume.

Amtrak keeps focusing on anything other than cost-effective upgrades to train service.

Obviously not much visionary, top-down, planning going on here.
