1. Full video from the Kansas City blogger’s conference.

2. German temporary markets in everything, bet against it lasting.

3. Facts about Macau.

4. Ryan Avent on American exports, and Yglesias on exports and rents; he is a man who understands that Ricardo remains underrated.  Here is Karl Smith on related issues.

5. Thinking politically makes you callous.  It really does.

“Ricardo remains underrated.”

Word to that. I wonder if Tyler has any thoughts on why this should be so. When I was an undergrad it was my impression that Ricardo was regarded as the quintessential Great Economist, admired by all. It has surprised me to discover more recently that econ types rarely speak well of him, and often hold him in contempt. Why?

Kansas City? BBQ craving, Tyler? Or did all of you east coast guys want to help Brad DeLong save a little money on his airfare?
