Going Mainstream

Joseph Stiglitz has taken the message he presented a few weeks ago in The Nation to a more prominent pulpit: the editorial page of the New York Times. The Times will certainly give him a wider audience. I wonder if anyone will actually pay attention to what he says.listen.

While I'm on the subject of economics, I heard a criticism of Obama's economic rescue plan as simply trying to recreate the economy as it was before the crash. Imagine, wanting to set up the same system that has created the latest panic. You'd think he would want to change things.

Yup. There's not a lot of impulse to smash the system upon which so many have grown fat. It is, however, dispiriting coming as it is from Mr. Change.

Greenwald has a good piece in Salon on the topic.
