Everyone Out of the Pool

Posted by: Tom Keene on July 19, 2011

Carpe Diem. We are drowning in information, up to our ears in a Bog of Blogs. What’s needed is clarity. Mark J. Perry is one who delivers. Observe his Carpe Diem as a post-by-post required read to get the brain going.

Note his observation on Michigan job formation v. California, and then check out his take on newspapers. Borrowing from Dubner, Perry illuminates our information flow.

What is known, is this July is not last July and with certitude not the July of 1690 (it was gahdawful with cholera forcing the Haves to summer at Kennebunk).

We are drowning. In our digital toys, our digital news, our digital elitism. Everyone out of the pool. Discuss.

Talking about professors. Our current situation, jobs, foreclosures, debt ceiling and empty business every where I walk. Brings to mind Professor's Krugman deflation scenario. We are falling into Japan's pattern.
