Weekend LInks

Does government spending increase economic growth? What do you think?

Confused about whether Obama's recent announcement about "renormalizing" relations with Cuba is a good idea?  With a large hat tip to one of my favorite blogs, NotPC, here are links to three articles looking at the issue from different perspectives:
First, writing at Forbes, Doug Bandow says enough is enough.
Second, writing at The Federalist, XXX informs us that Obama's move is something the left strongly desires and, thus, should be discouraged.
And lastly, a short, but informative, blogpost by economist Jim Rose noting the massive technological gap between Cuba and the rest of the world and it's implications for American companies.
