Hot Links: Momentum and the Job-pocalypse

First, a public service announcement.  I want to address that “rap video” about Elizabeth Warren and consumer finance that everyone seems to think is funny or cool or whatever.  It isn’t.  White people rapping about economics is NEVER FUNNY.  It’s not even accidentally funny.  I won’t link to it here because it’s just so lame.  Everytime it gets viewed, you’re encouraging more business school dorks to rap on Youtube.  Please do not encourage or contribute to this activity.  Thanks – JB.
