Since the beginning, USDR Senior Editor Steve Parkhurst has provided a great feature called Across the Pond. It has been one of our most popular features from the beginning. Several times a month Parkhurst sneaks a peek of what is going on in the UK and we are all surprised by how similar headlines show up in the USA a few days later. It is a great look into the future, as well as across the pond.
We have decided to create a new feature, called USDR Newsstand, that will include articles that are being enjoyed by our editors and contributors. We also hope that, over time, you will send us the articles you are reading that we can add to our list.

Total Pandemonium Black Friday.There is not much writing here, but you will find some incredible video that is making us stay home for the Day after Thanksgiving (it sounds like the title of a horror movie, the videos here could provide much of the footage to such a feature picture). Thanks to the Daily Caller.
The Next Great Technology Hiding in Plain Site. A look back at the Depression era reminds us to be skeptical of the technological pessimism of some leading economists today — few people foresaw just which inventions would be most momentous. From American.com.
Scrap the Welfare State. A controversial article from Reason argues “a guaranteed income would reduce the humiliations of the current welfare system while promoting individual responsibility.” Must reading.
