The problem with the government economic pages is I can link to the main page fine. When I start requesting individual statisitcal series -- such as the inflation rate from BLS or GDP numbers from BEA -- the pages don't link. I think the only way to get to those pages (the specific series of statistics) is to go to the government pages and specifically ask for the numbers.
I cite the main pages -- for example -- the Bureau of Labor Statistics -- to get people there. I don't know why, but whenever I paste a spcific page from the BEA or BLS into a diary, the link comes up "file not found."
The government pages are really easy to navigate once you're there.
Thank-you for posting on Supply-side economics and its complete and total failure, and tying it into this tradjedy.
Supply-side econ is one of my own personal political windmills because the numbers do not add up and have never added up. All you have to do is look at the CBOs budget history on its website to realize the truth.
I found the lack of coverage on the right wing blogs really interesting and somewhat puzzeling. Frankly, I thought they were doing the old "ignore it long enough and it won't be a story" conceot in action. There isn't much positive they can say about it.
