Wha’ Happen? Where’s My Money? Where’s My Job? Huh? Stiglitz Makes It Clear

Joseph Stiglitz, Nobel-prize-winning economist, dissects the decisions that got the United States economy into its current greasy pit.

He writes clearly, understandably, pointing the finger at five causes of today’s running disaster. Give it a look.

  1. We all bear responsibility. The Hyper-Consumer Culture.

    Once everyone accepts that, we can move on to identifying those people and policies that promoted it.

    please get shut of the irritating snow effect.

    snow is good. that’s real snow, not its javascript simulacrum. That’s just depressing.

  6. I liked Evo 1st comment. I think the linked article has a lot a good stuff that people on both sides (if there is two sides) of the aisle. I think the article could build on itself though and really capture even more. Like Sarbanes Oxley not being a really great cure no matter how noble for example.
    Anyway Ric merry Christmas
