Reportage sur moto:

Der Freitag.


— Tax deal’s macroeconomic boost isn’t quite timed right to maximize Obama’s re-election chances.

— Will Billy Tauzin tell tales about White House dealmaking with health care interest groups?

— Gabe Klein gets sacked (unexpected to nobody except perhaps Dave Alpert).

— If you want to see impressive intellectual powers brought to bear on defending the indefensible, Reihan Salam is usually your guy.

— The bubbles that didn’t pop (though I don’t see why this is relevant to the issue of whether or not asset markets are “efficient”).

Kraftwerk, “Tour de France” and yes this song isn’t in German.
