TARP, stimulus

Financial Times has two thought-provoking analysis/editorial pieces: One article on TARP's present status, and recommendations for the future. And another considers fiscal stimulus goals and implementation.

Thank the margins

McCain gave an excellent concession speech, and Obama gave an even better acceptance speech.

But the best part of the night? It was a decisive victory, free of [statistically significant] lawyering and second-guessing and voter fraud.

It really was a victory for democracy tonight.

Update: I voted anti-incumbent, as I noted recently. helpfully supplies a list of ousted incumbents.
