Wherein I Pay Up On A Bet

I am a total economics geek. I make bets on what the inflation rate will be at year end.

I bet New Deal Democrat over at the Economic Populist that the US inflation rate for the US would be higher in 2008 than 2007. While there is still one month left I feel confident in saying that December will not see a massive jump in inflation. As a result, I have donated $50 to Baghdad Pups.

BTW -- this is an entirely worthy charity run by the SPCA to help service men and women bring home animals they have befriended in Iraq. Being a big dog lover this is right up my alley.
