What We Read Today 26 January 2014

Econintersect: Every day our editors collect the most interesting things they find from around the internet and present a summary "reading list" which will include very brief summaries of why each item has gotten our attention. Suggestions from readers for "reading list" items are gratefully reviewed, although sometimes space limits the number accepted.

  • 11 Fast Facts About the Winter Olympics (Katherine Lagrave, Wall St. Cheat Sheet) One fact: These Winter Olympics will cost Russia more than the cost of all the other Winter Olympics in history combined.

  • Unhappy Europe (Kathleen Packard, The Gold Standard Now) Hat tip to John O'Donnell. Packard quotes Desmond Lachman of the American Enterprise Institute wrote in The Wall Street Journal:
"At the start of each of the past three years, European policy makers have confidently assured the world that the worst of the debt crisis was over and that their economies were finally on the mend. Yet, at the end of each of the past three years, Europe has been marked by higher unemployment, greater public debt and a more troubled political environment."
  • How Hegemons Fall (Samuel Lee, MorningstarAdvisor) Ray Dalio's five-stage model on the birth and death of empires. Econintersect has annotated the graph from the article. (Okay, so calling the contraction the "Obama Contraction" has about as much validity as referring the the "Great Roosevelt Depression".)

  • Sources of Performance Decay (Adam Butler, Mike Phibrick and Rodrigo Gordillo, Advisor Perspectives dhosrt.com) Adam Butler and Mike Philbrick have contributed to Global Economic Intersection. The authors address the question of why so often after a successful investment strategy is defined from historical data it fails to perform as well from that point forward.
  • New Old Keynesianism (John Quiggin, Out of the Crooked Timber) For economists this is lucid logic in a very entertaining dissertation. For non-economists it may be a "tough slog".
