Roundup and Link Love – Regular People Are Smarter Than Pundits and Government Economists

Check out this poll from CNN Money. Could it actually be that ordinary, average American citizens are smarter than all the PhD economists, talking heads, politicians, pundits, and lobbyists?

What will get global markets back on track?
A bigger, coordinated rate cut by central banks 4%
Regulatory changes 20%
Another stimulus package 6%
Time 69%

Lesson: Never sell short the common sense of the average person on the street!

I’ve been spending this week at a Grand Opening for one of my stores in Pensacola, Florida, home of the US Navy flight demonstration squadron, the Blue Angels. And even though this is the exact view from my hotel room, believe it or not, I haven’t set foot on the beach … yet.

Two restaurant recommendations:

  • Peg Leg Pete’s has some fabulous oyster dishes (as well as great raw oysters).
  • McGuire’s Irish Pub has one of the best steaks I’ve ever had and a fun atmosphere with over $750,000 one dollar bills that are signed and stapled to the ceiling. Yes, three quarters of a million dollars.
