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!

Vintage Dean Baker, on the general subject of annoying opinion writers who, at this late stage and at least two years and five books after there was any excuse, still don't understand what happened in the housing bubble. I have mentioned in the past that the main thing I admire about Dean is that he is a liberal economist who doesn't feel the need to apologise for himself; I'd also add that another characteristic which makes him a man after my own heart is that, when attacking a perennial enemy, he doesn't miss an opportunity to take a few swings at targets of opportunity and related old feuds too. The American Left Such As It Is (this phrase [tm] Doug Henwood) badly needs a platoon of him.
