Aunty Goob at Goobage notes the inflationary quality of stupidity. The bad news: "Stupidity compounds geometrically!

Want to know what's driving oil prices lately? Read Mover Mike' take in Higher Oil Prices, Inflation or Demand?

Joe Kristan at Roth & Company Tax Updates points to computer technology as an aiding and abetting accomplice to the growing complexity of the U.S. tax code.

Patri Friedman of Catallarchy reviews an article from Mother Jones and finds its author is really trying to say America is rich. There are all sorts of statistics and rankings flying around for this one, so perhaps one of the cool applications I recently discovered will get some traction in the blogosphere.

Brian Gongol is looking at the rules of resources where the world's food supply is concerned. Hands down, the best post of the week.
