By Aaron Katsman: Buy low and sell high. We are generally reminded of that old investing refrain when we make a bad stock pick and up end doing the opposite, selling low. For many investors while buying low and selling high sounds great in theory, in practice it’s hard to implement. How does one know when an asset is priced cheaply?
NEW YORK (AP) — Here's the latest goal for food makers: Perfect the art of imperfection. When stretching out the dough for its premium "Artisan Pizzas," Domino's workers are instructed not to worry about making the rectangles too perfect: The pies are supposed to have a more rustic look.

The Bureau of Economic Analysis’ (BEA) new Web portal on the ocean
and Great Lakes economy shows how the Bureau’s Regional Input-Output
Modeling System (RIMS II) can be used to provide answers to such
questions. The new Web site stems from a joint project with the Commerce
Department’s National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
RIMS II, a regional economic model, is used by investors, planners,
and elected officials to objectively assess the returns to projects
ranging from a new sports stadium to a new bridge. The returns include
the short- and long-term increases in jobs and spending associated
with the projects.
The idea behind the results of RIMS II is that an initial change in
economic activity leads to additional changes in economic activity in
other parts of an economy—for example, building a new bridge leads to
increased production of concrete and steel. The increased production of
concrete and steel leads to more mining. Workers benefiting from these
increases may also enjoy bigger paychecks, so they may then spend more
by eating out at nicer restaurants or splurging more on entertainment.

I received a number of noteworthy comments via email and as direct comment to my blog.Reader Jay commented ...The first thing all you capitalism bashers need to understand is that capitalism is not what we have in this country. We have crony capitalism/socialism/fascism at work right now. We have never had real capitalism.
