This time Air America Radio will deliver the goods:
Morning Sedition • 6am-9am etCheck out The Oil Drum for repercussions on the Freakonomics guy who jumped the shark over Peak Oil. In retrospect, I find Levitt's lack of deliberation especially disconcerting. A University of Chicago economics professor, Levitt knee-jerked a response to the NYT article in probably a few minutes of his time. He really doesn't care to advance the discourse. I think back to an old David Letterman one-liner, perfectly apropos here, "Do you know what I've realized? I think Madonna likes to shock people."
Your daily wake-up call, with a healthy shot of laughter and a thorough look at the day's news, with Marc Maron (ed: on vacation) and Mark Riley.
Tuesday: NYT columnist Bob Herbert on the Iraq war, NYT Sunday Magazine writer Peter Maass on Saudi Oil, has it peaked?
Update:Maas also on Terry Gross's NPR show.
And MaxSpeak has some opinions, via Atrios. Both Max and Duncan, as economists, show more common sense in their pinky fingers than Levitt does in his freakishly swelled head.
