Is Paulson just playing mind games with the market? Wouldn’t surprise me if this was part of the strategy. As we have seen, there is still a great deal of indecision out there as to whether this deal will get done. I, for one, am concerned about what Congress is doing to it (it’s gone from 3 pages to 33 in 2 days). It certainly is not perfect and I question whether Government is...

Paul Krugman wrote this 12 years ago, from a perspective of 100 years from then. “Perhaps the best way to describe the flawed vision of fin-de-siecle futurists is to say that, with few exceptions, they expected the coming of an “immaculate” economy — an economy in which people would be largely emancipated from any grubby involvement with the physical world. The future,...

Google shaking things up again with the release of their own browser. My first impression is very positive, both in terms of the product/technology and strategy. I don’t think Google really cares about Chrome’s future market share so much as they want to see the best components adopted by the other browsers, and vice versa. This is basically Google kicking Firefox, Internet Explorer,...
