Why does this cost less than a salad?
  • The New York Times has a story saying that competition from charters is forcing public schools to compete for student. Imagine that.
  • Super Economy compares the fortunes of Swedish-Americans with actual Swedes in Sweden. I think he is pretty dead-on in his conclusions.
