Best in Economics this week: June 27

Last week’s big news: more than 50 million people are on the run…

As usual, interesting reading from @went1955. As for the decline of the US: fracking, apparently (second link)…



“Low interest rates and secular stagnation: Is debt a missing link?”


Germany is weird. I do not know a country with so many Herr Doktor’s, but it ranks low on university schooling…
