It would be neat if the save/mark as read buttons were always visible, not just when hovering, and if they were always in the same place, so one could just click over and over to clear out articles.

Thanks for replying, Wayne, but what I'm looking for is a way to see the hide and save links all of the time. It's not a view setting. The requirement to hover over the links in order to see if the particular post is saved or read is really inefficient. I really don't want to let feedly automatically mark stuff as read if I can't see what has been so marked. It's definitely a "cool design feature" in theory, but it's more of an "aggravating design bug" in practice.

This is why you shouldn’t pay attention to consumer confidence indicators
Neil Irwin The graph Neil embedded in the post doesn't quite do his argument justice. See below for the same data, but zoomed. http://research.stlouisfed.org/fred2/graph/?g=oHn&dbeta=1 <iframe src="//research.stlouisfed.org/fred2/graph/graph-landing.php?dbe...

Is Economics a Science?
Robert Shiller "The advance of behavioral economics is not fundamentally in conflict with mathematical economics, as some seem to think, though it may well be in conflict with some currently fashionable mathematical economic models."

Introduction
I am a graduate student in economics at NC State. I primarily use Google+ as a portal to my political economy blog, and as a medium for communication with those with similar interests. I try to send all of my posts to my stream here, but I'd recommend using RSS if you'd like to follow the blog. I also share articles I find interesting here.
