Amid the migrant crisis in Europe, and the Czechs pulling people off trains and writing on their arms, a French municipality launched a probe into an Auxerre elementary school’s use of yellow tags to identify students who do not eat pork.

Entrepreneurs operating under faulty market signals created by the Federal Reserve malinvested hundreds of billions of dollars into capital intensive projects primarily in the housing sector.
