DEEP THOUGHTS IN THE BLOGOSPHERE. Much goodness today. James Lileks has a thoughtful (if conclusion-free) ramble about regulation, the Triangle Shirtwaist Fire, and unions. (My only caveat is that he doesn’t note that unions exploited the actual awfulness of working conditions in order to push their own variations on Communism–exploiting exploitation, I suppose.) Then you get Unqualified Offerings’ praise of Paul Prudhomme, plus an often-overlooked point about capitalism and luxury goods. And finally you get The Edge of England’s Sword, which is so spiffy today that it’ll get its own post. Hang on.
