1. Bloomberg's soda law gets shot down. Great news, but sad that the nanny state is so bad that it got to this stage in the first place.
2. Here's a clip where Jayson Lusk is on the John Stossel show (he's on starting at the 2 minute mark). It's not often an agricultural economist gets on national TV - congrats Jayson! Also, there's a story on fracking.
3. Bill Gates didn't like the book "Why Nations Fail". The authors respond here.
4. Caplan on the minimum wage. Note, I think the top comment is spot on. While Card and Krueger made a serious attempt, there are so many questions that it's tough for me to take it seriously.
