Omnibus Post

Just a few notes on some media highlights on a busy Monday:

The New York Times reports on how US taxpayers are profiting from the bank bailout - so far - reminding us that the bailout was not based on grants but loans.

NPR has a nice chat with the undercover economist.

Greg Mankiw is not impressed by the correlation between income and SAT scores.

Paul Krugman has more to say.

The NYTimes piece is like that guy who brags because he bought Enron at the dead cat bounce. Its AFTER the bounce that makes all the difference.

That said, my meager savings is long financials at the moment.
