Friday Link Dump

It's been an interesting day at Unknown University. We had a huge storm blow through, and there was flooding in many buildings around campus. Unfortunately, one of the buildings housed the university servers, and they had to shut down before there were short circuits that could really mess things up. As a result, they cancelled afternoon classes, and I've had no internet access all day. In any event, there have been a few interesting things that came across my bloglines account, so I thought I'd post a Link Dump before I turned in for the night.

Greg Mankiw's top-selling economics principles text is centered around Ten Principles of Economics. Yoram Bauman (the world's only "stand-up economist") gives the unofficial, humorous version in this video.

The Wall Street Journal (online subscription required) reports on a large insider-trading scheme involving over a dozen individuals at investment banking firm UBS AG and several hedge funds.
