Levi Russell nicely busts a common myth about economics.  (Note: to the extent that any actual economists are guilty of even coming close to living ‘up’ to this myth, among the actual economists who emphatically do not live ‘up’ to this myth are the Austrians – who are, of course, the most consistently market-oriented economists in the world today.)

T. Norman Van Cott corrects a common fallacy about immigrants’ spending.
