Much of the time when I read something

May 1, 2009

in the newspaper related to what I work on, I realize that when reporters try to explain the facts, they get it wrong, or at least explain it wrong, since they stop a few steps before the correct explanation-probably looking for the ‘bad guy versus good guy’ explanation, rather than a consistent and coherent explanation.

The Baseline Scenario is probably the worst online site. When did the IMF ever successfully deal with oligarachs? As far as I know, that organization spent much of its time giving money to the oligarchs, or funnelling money to communists. I don’t like bailouts, either.
