Duncan’s Economic Blog

Some Links

Posted in Uncategorized by duncanseconomicblog on January 10, 2011

On Friday evening I had quite an interesting debate (via twitter) with the FT’s Alan Beattie (author of this – which is an excellent read and proves very useful if you find yourself in a long chat about Argentinean economic history at a New Year’s Party, I’m aware this may only be something that happens to me).

I promised a blog post – on Labour’s record on the public finances and where we went wrong.  It’s taking longer than I anticipated – but should be up tomorrow (EDIT: :later today).

In the meantime four things worth reading:

Paul Mason’s “interviews” with Karl Marx and Maynard Keynes. Superb writing.

Mark Blyth’s Huffington Post article on the bailouts and banks business models. (And if you haven’t seen it, his video on False Economy about austerity economics).

Chris Dillow on Labour, the deficit and investment.
