Morning reads

The nails in the coffin of "peak oil." There is no question more important to the future prosperity of humanity than the nature and supply of its inanimate energy.

The economics of food trucks.

New York City's tax burden -- unique among American cities in its breadth and depth -- is turning in to a real obstacle to economic growth. This is, as much as anything else, the consequence of the big reduction in earnings on Wall Street. In other words, liberals having achieved their objective of reducing income among the one-percenters in the financial industry are now going to reap the fiscal consequences. One way or the other. (We at TSOE, not being particular fans of rent-seeking, have no issue with the retrenchments on Wall Street, by the way. We do much prefer low taxes and smaller government, a solution to the current dilemma that will offend most New York voters.)

    Meanwhile, from Voice of America:

    "For many would-be entrepreneurs, the cost of opening a store in New York and other U.S. cities is prohibitive. But from coast-to-coast, the traditional model for retail stores is taking a new direction -- on four wheels."
