There, that should scare off all the creepy people who just come here because of a google search that brings up a post with the words "kiddy porn" in the title that I wrote.

Now that they've left, I'll recommend a good bit of popular economics writing for you folks. It's the introduction to the new edition of John Maynard Keynes's The General Theory of Employment, Interest, and Money, it's written by your friend and mine Paul Krugman, and it can be found at the Unofficial Paul Krugman Web Page.

(It's also from about a month back, but heck with it. It's a good read anyway.)

Krugman breaks down both why Keynes is vital, why reading the "hard parts" of the book is important to understanding what Keynes was up to, why "new classicists" owe so much to Keynes, and why Keynes' critics are full of it. It's a good read, as Krugman's popular economics work usually is, so go read it.

And while you're doing it, rail against those bastards at the Times for putting him behind a subscription wall while people like Krauthammer go unchecked.
