House Ag Committee chair Conaway comments on the state of the ag economy.

Don Boudreaux corrects Paul Krugman on the definition of a public good.

Bryan Caplan blogs about an interesting article by Niclas Berggen on the pro-govt bias of behavioral economists. Berggen's results:

Our main findings are that 20.7% of all articles in behavioral economics in the ten journals contain a policy recommendation and that 95.5% of these do not contain any analysis at all of the rationality or cognitive ability of policymakers. In fact, only two of the 67 articles in behavioral economics with a policy recommendation contain an assumption or analysis of policymakers of the same kind as that applied to economic decision-makers. In the remaining 65 articles, policy recommendations are proffered anyway.
