Thursday round up.

John Tamny says there is no deflation.

Dan Mitchell points out that EU nations, on average, impose their top tax rates at much lower income levels than the U.S.

Steve Hanke recently discussed the euro on CNBC.

Forbes summarizes adjustment mechanisms under Robert Mundell’s “Theory of Optimum Currency Areas.”
