Daily Reading on the Financial Markets: 3/25/13

NPM Planet Money charts the startling rise in “disability”, and points that states are strongly incentivized to move people from “Unemployed” (state-funded) to “Disabled” (Federally funded).

Yves Smith at Naked Capitalism wonders why there is no little commentary on the rising oligarch class in America?  Why are they called “elites” rather than “oligarchs”?

Michael Lind at Salon.com warns against what he calls the “Rentier Agenda”, essentially unproductive wealth that privately taxes more productive forms of business.

Barry Ritholtz points out that Bearish skepticism may be an overcrowded trade at the moment, despite (and perhaps because of) the recent run-up in prices.
