Counterparties is a nice little collection of curated and tagged economic news stories, 5-8 every day. It is edited in part by the admirable (and MetaFave) financial journalist Felix Salmon.

Good stuff: Ron Paul's investments a "half-step away from a cellar-full of canned goods and nine-millimeter rounds."

Salmon is one of the best out there. Counterparties is excellent- he's created something that will hopefully survive him.

Crazy Ronnie and his gold stocks are up what, about 500% over 10 years vs a more/less flat s&p? Not saying that goldbugs aren't a bunch of doomsday wishing idjuts, but he's beating the piss out of those geniuses who manage my so called 401k.

I am certainly sensitive to irritation with cliches. What term do you suggest for carefully selecting a few important links to highlight for the average reader?

I was in two minds about whether to bookmark this, until I saw the list on the right-hand side entitled "Stuff we're not linking too" included Barney Frank’s Protruding Nipples: Why Do Nipples Harden in the Cold?.

Sold.

I don't understand. Why isn't each and every day just 5-8 links to Dealbreaker?

Because they have to link at least once a day to FT-Alphaville
