Unexpectedly Intriguing!
July 18, 2005

This week's CotC is being hosted by Andrew Roth of the Club for Growth, which is not just a Political Action Committee, but a blog too (actually, two blogs if you count their Social Security Choice effort!) So, without further delay, here are the best posts of the week!

  • Is there any such thing as a temporary tax? Shamalama of Common Folk Using Common Sense finds that Pennsylvania's "temporary" tax on alcohol to help pay for recovery efforts following the 1936 Johnstown flood is still being collected nearly 70 years later!
  • Warren Meyer asks "Why Aren't We Seeing Long Gas Lines?" in the best economics post of the week!
  • What do you think of Jim Cramer? If you've heard his radio show, or seen him on television, you know he's not shy about telling all of us what he thinks about the stocks he's *really* excited about. But, what's his track record? Free Money Finance has the scoop!
  • The best business post of the week is delivered by Mover Mike, entitled "Deflation Discounting! In one post, Mover Mike picks up on a post by Furniture Today's Retail Ideas blogger Loreen Epp on how today's economic environment of inflation combined with deflation and market competition is affecting how furniture is priced, and comments on how it should be priced. Great business environment insight!

Next week, Political Calculations(TM) will be hosting the Carnival of the Capitalists! For those who would like to submit posts for the next Carnival, please use the CotC's official submission form (at Gongol.com).
