After every negative economic report over the last two years (and there have been many of those), we keep hearing that the latest news may be "threatening the recovery." To which I must ask, what recovery?
Also, I was rather surprised to see a New York Global Regents Exam have a long excerpt from von Mises' Human Action. That book was a difficult read for me and I go out of my way to find challenging works. The quote wasn't too bad, but was dry enough to lose a few of my kids before they could figure out what he was saying. I hate that test, for anyone who cares.
