Can you help the Captain out?

Captain Capitalism has sent out a request for help:

The Captain is being held hostage.

He will not be released, and therefore not be able to make any new posts, until he receives 100,000 new hits (or he raises $5,000 from book/kindle sales ahem ahem, cough cough!)

The following brilliant posts (full of super-awesome economic genius) will be forwarded, linked to, facebooked, “reddited,” etc., BY YOU until our 100,000 new hits demand is met.

The “Great Liberal Economic Oort Cloud.

A “Cold Detroit

My “Bondage A Go Go Girl Story

Women’s Rights Movement Felled By a Collapse in the Division of Labor

Since Christmas shopping season is coming, You WILL Buy Your Children TOYS!!!!

And at the request of our good friend Sr. Ortega, “Unfortunately, Men Do Exist.”

    The two “spheres” of blogs I read are the manosphere and the “econo-sphere”. So, I perked up at the mention of one I hadn’t heard of. (One thing I’ve learned is not to combine themes: once I posted a response to a 25-year-old married guy on an economics blog talking about how tough it was to start a family in this economy. I suggested instead that he shouldn’t be married and should be out sportfucking 19-year-olds, but my post was promptly deleted by the blog owner.)

    To earn points from me, a blogger has to do some real analysis. My favorite blogs are http://www.calculatedriskblog.com/ and http://globaleconomicanalysis.blogspot.com/ which both do excellent in-depth original analysis on economic issues. I read another dozen or so economics blogs weekly. A few niche ones are fascinating, like http://mpettis.com/ .

    I spent some time on the Captain’s blog. His points about the economy are accurate yet pedestrian (e.g., taxation doesn’t result in a net job increase or that socialist policies discourage risk-taking). The Captain’s blog doesn’t do any real analysis of any depth. He just makes obvious jabs and then lets it go.

    And what in the world is up with a guy who rides a Ninja 250? He should get a real sport bike or just admit that he’s not man enough for one. What’s up with a Ninja 250? A Ninja 250 is like a fat chick: they’re fun to ride once but you wouldn’t want your friends to see you riding it. (I say that euphemistically since I know guys that will ride a fat chick if she will put out easily. For the record, I’ve never ridden a fat chick myself. Greenlander has his standards!) I enjoy motorcycle riding but I wouldn’t be caught dead on a Ninja 250. Captain, get a CBR 650, a GSXR or a ZX6R or something already.

    Dalrock, you’re off-base on this one…

    I like Mish and Zero Hedge. I sometimes give a glance to The Market Ticker. For the gold bugs among you, try FOFOA, he is on blogspot.com. He has some interesting perspectives and his commenters are a fairly thoughtful bunch. I don’t agree with everything FOFOA says, but he has made me think about my assumptions regarding money, debt and banking. Another to recommend is Slope of Hope with Tim Knight, although that one is more intended toward traders.

    Stay far, far away from Krugman and his ilk, he is a shill for big government, the kind that got us into trouble in the first place.

    Nice, I am interested in statistical arbitrage and bit of behavioural economics. Any good blogs for that too?
