Linkin' Blogs: Business and Economics

Today I'm adding three links to business and economics sites.
First up is Environmental Economics, which provides lots of insight into, well, environmental economics. The site provides lots of good stuff for wonks who understand (or would like to better understand) the many ways in which sound environmental policies go hand in hand with sound economic policies. One of the regulars, Tim Haab, a professor at Ohio State, doesn't keep his interest in the environment from spoiling his enjoyment of NASCAR:
I'm totally stoked for the Daytona 500 this weekend...and if you think that looks funny in writing you should hear me say it.
Fellow blogger John Whitehead, another econ professor (Appalachian State), recently offered this succinct comment on BushCo's energy policy:
So many subsidies, so little time ...
Next is Economist's View. If you want to know more about "dark matter" -- capital flows that don't show up in official trade statistics, this is the place to go. A recent post cast a skeptical eye at BushCo's claim that health savings accounts don't disproportionately attract the healthy and wealthy:
How surprising to find that the administration would shade the evidence to support its case.
Those of a more entreprenuerial bent will want to check out Let the Good Times Roll by Silicon Valley legend Guy Kawasaki, who offers this useful definition what it is we do:
Blogger. n. Someone with nothing to say writing for someone with nothing to do.
The irony of course is that Kawasaki has plenty to say and plenty to do. He's been online less than two months, but his blog provides a treasure trove of useful tips, like the 10/20/30 Rule of PowerPoint presentations:
It’s quite simple: a PowerPoint presentation should have ten slides, last no more than twenty minutes, and contain no font smaller than thirty points.
If you must use more than ten slides to explain your business, you probably don’t have a business.
These three sites provide plenty of geeky goodness. Coming up: Updates to my local links, which will include something almost unthinkable beyond the Diamond State: links to some of Delaware's conservative blogs.
