Daily Trawl

This feature will be exactly what it says on the tin; a dump of stuff I read this morning which looked interesting, possibly with a note as to why.

1. Prohibition news from The Economist
The ball keeps rolling; in this case it’s signs that mainstream capital agents are beginning to take the possibility of change seriously enough to put money into it.

2. Chris Hayes on jobs
Looking at the insulation of the elites from the damage of a jobless recovery.

3. Celebrity candidacy from Ashley Judd?
Is this in any way a real thing? Michael Catalini has more.

4. Nate Silver on the future
Reality-based worldview from America’s most succesful political prohpet.

That’s all, folks. Good night and good luck.

Per Argument Ad Astra

Politics, history, economics and rampant speculation from a victim of the Great Recession, currently at large in the West Midlands.

"When the regulation, therefore, is in favour of the workmen, it is always just and equitable; but it is sometimes otherwise when in favour of the masters."
