[links] the blowing of the economic winds

In general, I find government and economic policy and philosophy fascinatingly useful for future world-building. I'm not as schooled in it as I could or should be, but I still find things like the below good mind food.

- Salon's How the World Works on Huckabee economics and Ron Paul economics. Very interesting stuff, and I'd like to see the same thoughts for other candidates as well such as Clinton or Obama.

- Marginal Revolution economic thoughts, both certain and uncertain. I'm not sure what to think about Marginal Revolution's site, but it certainly makes me think.

- Is another Dot-Com crash coming? (from Screenwerk). I missed out on the whole first crash (part of working for an old-time company), and it looks like I'm going to miss this one too.

- Political books Americans have been reading (at, via Bruce Sterling's WIRED blog Beyond the Beyond. Not completely economics, but very interesting and you can play with the cool network map!

- Fresh Air interview with David Cay Johnston, author of "Free Lunch: How the Wealthiest Americans Enrich Themselves at Government Expense (and Stick You With the Bill". I think there's some sort of relationship between the sentiment of a book like this and the results in Iowa caucuses, but I haven't sussed it out yet.

Addendum: On a lighter note, here's Good Experience's year-end list of fun links. There's some serious time-wasting available here.
