Friday Movie Night - (what else) Bail Out!

hot buttered popcorn It's Friday Night! Party Time!   Time to relax, put your feet up on the couch, lay back, and watch some detailed videos on economic policy!  

This week we have seen more rhetoric in video that I can ever remember.

Representative Mary Kaptur says Let's Play Bail Out!

and here is a Republican Thaddeus McCotter not towing the Party line


Switching gear is a Princeton Panel Presentation with Economists Alan Blinder and Paul Krugman, amoung others. The hour long video has some meat to it as the intended audience are folks (or should I switch and say colleagues) with an economics background. Accompanying slides for the ones not detailed enough in the video. I would have put this first but for some reason Blinder's speech is not there! (did he point out something not according to the party line?). Still worth viewing.



as far as the debate goes

Each candidate in my view completely ignored this "bail out" and a golden opportunity to talk about what needs to really happen and the asset pricing issue.
