Some of the posts on this blog deal with economics.  They fall into three categories:

  • Treasury and Fed.  Insights into how the Treasury and the Fed are managing their portfolios.
  • Treasury Floaters.  The Treasury has begun to issue its floating rate notes.  I questioned part of the Treasury’s rationale for floaters.
  • Other.  There are three posts on the Reinhart-Rogoff controversy, two about precious metals, and one about a proposed reform of the municipal bond market.
