Interesting Articles All Around
Just a few things I highly recommend to all of you, my treasured fans …
First, an interesting history of how the U.S. got into its current financial situation, from Reason. The Wall Street Journal talks about the spending habits of an Illinois law firm familiar to many in the Saint Louis area. Here is another Journal article about the difficulties firms are having in moving forward with public-private partnerships under present market conditions. And, yet, here is a New York Times story about one major public-private partnership moving ahead in Chicago — the privatization of Midway Airport. Finally, you might have already seen this widely read article about the bailout from economist Jeffrey Miron, at CNN, but it is worth a very careful read.
P.S.: Thanks to Jack and Dave for sending me two of these links!
