Quote of the Day

We all know the end of the story as it's now being written with an overpriced rescue of the banks. When it comes time for health care reform, education funding, infrastructure rebuilding, and (heaven forbid) help for the world's poor and dying people, there will be no fiscal space. Budgets will be tight. Spending that helps make rich guys richer while leaving the poor to die of hunger and disease seems to be par for the course in our Wall-Street-besotted public policy.

  1. I stumbled upon this blog while researching my paper for the Congo and I wondered where the money that should be going back into the country is going. Is it self-serving politicians there? Greedy Western Socities? Both? If you wanted to talk a little about that, I'd love to use you in my paper.
