Common Sense Economics

Steven Pearlstein writes straightforward and understandable economics columns for the Washington Post. I can't recall reading any that did not increase my economic knowledge or explain economic trends and ideas. His conclusion today is worth remembering:
In Washington, there’s a widespread belief that what is at stake in the coming negotiations over the budget and the debt limit is nothing less than the outcome of the next election. What Washington needs to understand is that there’s a lot more at stake than that.

Another good economic source is BadTux, the Snarky Penguin. He's not a national pundit but in the past week alone he's gotten it right on health careand stuff. And with BadTux readers can actually see the Free Market Fairy.

Pearlstein and a penguin. Or vice-versa? Either way makes sense.
