Overthinkers in the U.S. already have today off for Labor Day. For our fans overseas, it’s a federal holiday, so we’re taking the day off. No new posts today, sorry.
Instead, consider this sampling of labor- and economic-themed posts from our site. Here’s to the working class!
– One of our continuing sources of Google traffic, Lee’s post asking just how much is 20 million rupees, anyway?
– McNeil takes a look at how Leverage, the most class-conscious heist show on TV today, would clean up the Gulf oil spill.
– Guest author Tom Houseman gave us this insightful look at action figure hegemonics in Toy Stoyr 3 with Toys are Born Free, and Everywhere They Are in Boxes.
– And people seemed to like my post comparing gangsta rap and Seinfeld, as viewed through the lens of the working man: the street-corner hustler.
Any posts I forgot? Any new comments to add (since comments are closed on most of these)?
