Around the horn
Stuff I read today that you should, too!
Bernanke’s out of control! Russell Roberts thinks Bernanke has gone overboard in reacting to the Great Recession. He might be right, though as the man who jumped out of the burning airplane with no parachute said, “First things first!”
Kicking healthcare, Massachusetts style. Kurt Brouwer finds fault aplenty with RomneyCare.
Words Bernanke wishes he hadn’t said. My pal John Carney of Clusterstock has a must-read (and must-view) photo gallery of some Bernanke misses. But what about his chitchat with Maria Bartiromo!
How to pay for real economic stimulus. Ed Harrison had the same idea I did. Cut entitlements tomorrow create fiscal space today.
Another vote for Bernanke. Right-of-center economist Greg Mankiw likes the Bernanke reappointment.
Trillion dollar stimulus. Donald Marron notices that the Obama’s fiscal stimulus plan may cost $900 billion.
