Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

For James Hamilton, the St Louis Fed article you reference is here (pdf).

Hamilton blogs on Econbrowser.

Strangely, Gogol was incapable of returning the article reference (yet your title is exact). It found only one ref on the Web, your comment here.

The Tale of how Ivan Ivanovich Quarrelled with Ivan Nikiforovich is the funniest thing ever written in the history of everything ever written.

It's not poetry.

Yes, it is. All "fiction" is poetry.

Futhermore, mathematics is poetry. The definition of poetry is intepretation of language.

and FTP. Inquiries welcomed.

Your GOOG mining reminded me of some reconn I did a few months ago on the topic "participatory realism," i.e. "magical thinking." I used to quote Piaget extensively from books that I own. I found that my comment here ranks in top ten.

Inquiries welcomed.

I think I saw ThatBritGuy use it. Also my eight-year-old granddaughter who picked up the name from overheard conversations (in French, where Google may be pronounced closer to Gogol), and turned it into her favourite insult. In her language, it applies to anyone who is pushing her around or being generally annoying, so, quite often, her elder sister, who gets called espèce de Gogol!

Nikolai is a great story-teller.
