Blogs themselves need no introduction, as they get as much publicity as pretty much anything these days, save maybe the latest Britney news. There's an expanding world of excellent financial blogs, covering pretty much everything from global economics to swing trading. Minyanville's goal is to bring together the best of what they are saying "out there" about the topics we're talking about right here.


No Habla Fed?

Some translations, via mi amigo, Abnormal.

  • Stagflation Rules, says David at the Journal's Market Beat.
  • "This shift in posture (if not quite bias) was not motivated by the vanquishing of inflation, it was due to threat of recession" says Barry.
  • And the Capital Speculator chimes in..."by our reckoning, the central bank is preparing the market for what may be a new round of tightening if inflationary momentum continues. Mr. Market, however, chose to place his focus elsewhere. So be it. Optimism usually wins out when there's a choice. Most of the time, the optimism's well placed. Will it be again?"


Fox and NBC combine to put YouTube out of biz?

I don't see it. Among other things, it is diametrically opposite to the whole online video concept. They're picking the clips for you. Brilliant.

  • Owen Thomas at Business 2.0 Beta is not impressed with "NBC FoxTube." "NBC and Fox would be better off taking the money and energy they're putting into this venture and investing it in their own websites and salespeople - and, for that matter, negotiating a revenue-sharing and licensing agreement with YouTube, which has captured online video watchers' attention."
  • Jeff Jarvis is more optimistic, but "if it is done wrong - if the networks try to maintain too much control and still tell us what to like and where we can watch TV - then it will fail miserably. I'll be keeping a close eye on this."
  • Paul Kedosky wonders how they will pick hits online when they have a poor track record finding them on actual TV.
  • Google (GOOG) has already dubbed it "Clown TV," as per Tech Crunch.


Part of the Morning Routine.


More Than a Feeling?


Piece of Mind

  • My wife has a great idea for a new offering at Subway or Quizno's. The Sub-Prime Sub, chock full of roast beef that ordinarily couldn't get into a sandwich.
  • Nascar freak Dylan Ratigan today on Wallstrip.
  • Plenty of time to vote for the Name of the Year, lol (Thanks RR).
