How Transparent Economics Would Really Work

(Elko. NV)   Thursday morning’s UrbanSurvival report (*available here) rather cynically lambasted the whole US government reporting system for p[resenting the public with mindless statistical gobbledygook which is almost impossible to sort out in any kind of meaningful way.  So I thought it would be instructive this morning to look at how we could rewrite economic reports so that the general public could get something useful out of them.  However, before we go into this, we begin with our trudge through the headlines to see if the world survived another night.  Which it would have to (logically) in order to be posing rhetorical questions like this, but we’ll do it anyway while the coffee kicks in.

The “Method School” of Economics

What’s my motivation?” is an odd cliché for a site ostensibly about long wave economics to be inquiring about.  But this morning we’ll take a quick look at something that has been rattling around in the back of my mind since about the second day of our latest adventuring around the country.   First, though, some headlines to help kick the brain cells into functioning – helped along by a generous shot of coffee as we await sunrise (or is that cloud rise?) on Puget Sound.
