3.  ARTICLES


(a) Bloggings on Dysfunctional Government


Angelo A. Paparelli writes "The dismal state of the economy has
caused economists to revive the Keynesian notion of "animal
spirits," the concept that the economy is not merely understood
through the study of charts, metrics and data, but also from
psychological factors that move people to invest, build, lend,
buy and sell."

http://www.seyfarth.com/


(b) The Forgotten Federal Census Of 1885


Rebecca Crawford for the National Archives and Records
Administration writes "How can someone find such detailed
information about a family living in the mid-1880s? By using the
1885 federal semidecennial census schedules."
