A briefing on the financial crisis

Why, oh why, aren't all news stories like this?  The Economist has always set a high bar.  On a crisis involving finance, economy and politics, this "briefing" doesn't disappoint -- it's my recommendation for clear and full context on the financial crisis.

I used to subscribe to the Economist until my frequent flier program dropped them from their list of magazines (I was willing to give up 2000 miles for a subscription, but $100/year seems awfully expensive).  A story like this makes me remember what I'm missing.

  1. Contrary to what the main stream media says, wall street as a whole (capitalism) should not be blamed for the actions and policies set forth by OUR congress. There are, in fact, corrupt men in wall street who partnered with corrupt men in government to engineer a win-win situation at the expense of the taxpayer. Capitalism (and our nation or any nation) will only survive when the good and virtuous people are running it. Which means, come this November, you must vote for good men and women who stand by principle and uphold our constitution and not just give lip service to causes that seem noble and just.
