Hey, What’d I Miss? OTE Summary, 12/3 – 12/9

December 10th, 2012 at 3:17 pm
  • Considering potential economic growth (or how to raise the economy’s speed limit!) in an op-ed over at the New York Times.
  • Correcting misconceptions about runaway government spending:  there’s just not much to see here, folks — move along.
  • A roundup of posts on the November jobs report:  previewing how the storm could affect the jobs numbers, comparing data from Katrina with those from Sandy, laying out my first impressions, and highlighting the November report via video.
  • Some (fiscal) cliff notes:  looking at the Republican’s counter-offer, summarizing a new fiscal plan from the Center for American Progress, explaining why now’s not the time to move to the chained CPI or raise the Medicare eligibility age, and reflecting on the nerve-wracking relationship between the fiscal cliff and the debt ceiling.

Bonus:  a Holiday Musical Interlude, from the deeply soulful Mr. Lou Rawls.
