Some items to chew over while I'm pondering the testimony:
- Brad DeLong argues consumers (PDF) rather than slave owners captured most of the gains of North American slavery.
- Lassetter & Landay "Bin Laden Benefits from U.S. Focus on Iraq."
- Hipsterotica. Arguably unsafe for work but I think people are too cautious about that sort of thing.
- The case against Martin Feldstein.
