Economics and similar, for the sleep-deprived
A subtle change has been made to the comments links, so they no longer pop up. Does this in any way help with the problem about comments not appearing on permalinked posts, readers?
Update: seemingly not
Update: Oh yeah!

Blah blah Project Africa blah
I swear I will type in about 500 words of Kapelwa Musonda over the next weekend. I realise that ProZam is in serious trouble (like every other initially well-meaning attempt by OECD liberals to get involved in African politics, I note with irony), mainly due to the credit crumble and am hoping to get it back on the road soon. Meanwhile (and this is not a breach of my self-denying ordinance re: US election coverage as he absolutely does not endorse any candidates for the US presidency, I'll note that in the past I've had a few harsh words to say about Matthew Yglesias's blog, but he has nailed it on more than a few occasions over the last couple of weeks and this post in particular is really rather good.
In unrelated news, while I still fundamentally hate live music, Spiritualized at the Roundhouse yesterday really fucking rocked. I'm always impressed by Jason Spaceman's complete refusal to recognise the even existence of his audience; he's much more of a stereotype black-shades Sixties psychedelic rocker than anyone ever dared to be during the Sixties. Halfway through the concert, Ms Digest asked me "isn't he even going to say something like 'Hello London'?". All I could reply was "it's quite likely that he isn't aware that he's actually in London".
