I shall post videos, graphs, news stories, and other material there. We shall use some of this material in class, and you may review the rest at your convenience. You will all receive invitations to post to the blog. (Please let me know if you do not get such an invitation.) I encourage you to use the blog in these ways:
To post questions or comments about the readings before we discuss them in class;
To follow up on class discussions with additional comments or questions.
To post relevant news items or videos.

There are only two major limitations: no coarse language, and no derogatory comments about people at the Claremont Colleges.

Clogging the Bipartisanship Drains

Most frustrating for me during all of this back-and-forth with the stimulus bill is inability for either party to, for lack of a better phrase, grin and bear it. Even with unemployment at a 16 year high and interest rates basically bottoming out, Congress continues to waste time, maybe I can reevaluate this statement after Tuesday's vote.

Also interesting to see what has already been cut from the bill.

Lastly, to open it up for discussion a little bit, how much involvement should we hope to see from the government in this recovery? Should we really be "worried" about the "return of economic nationalism"?
