Morning Reading

Scott Jagow Aug 24, 2009

Hope you had a good weekend. Here are some things that made me sit up and pay attention this morning:

The government’s accounting tricks (The Washington Times) Today’s must read.

What the stress tests didn’t predict (New York Times)

Stick a fork in Reaganism (Paul Krugman/NYT)

Status-quo anxiety and health care (The New Yorker)

Home prices will keep going lower (Businessweek)

Despite recession, spending more on their pets (NPR)
