As part of the Treasury plan, the government is launching a new website : There’s nothing much on there yet, but it’ll be the place to find out who’s getting money from the bailout and what they’re doing with it. All contracts will be posted on this site. Even if the government’s plan is awful and doesn’t work, at least we’ll know what’s going on. That’s been a problem so far. Information is power, baby!
