1. Some articles are widely discussed from time to time (eg. Hip heterodoxy). MR points to a new one which asks why most research findings are false.

3. WSJ Blog points to a new paper by Fed that says:

The study examined how the U.S.’s trading partners adjust the prices of their exports when their currencies rise or fall against the dollar. The study, posted this week on the Fed’s Web site, found that increasingly, they tend to lower their prices when their currency rises against the dollar. That would tend to keep their prices constant in dollar terms in the U.S. market, minimizing their loss of market share. The reverse is usually also true — that is, they raise their prices when their currency falls against the dollar — with the exception of Canada.

 NY Fed had a similar paper which I mentioned here.
