I try to make sure to provide links here to stuff I write for other sites but fall down on that job sometimes. Here are a few I think I missed:
A couple of pieces on the current economic outlook with lots of neat graphics.
A piece linking the Fed’s big question to the Clash’s big question.
Celebrating Labor Day, but not getting all sentimental about it.
A review of an important book about deep poverty and the policy agenda that supports it.
I think that’s it…happy reading!
i’ve seen a lot of links to the Atlantic piece elsewhere; it must of hit a nerve…very unusual for so many of my diverse sources to be pointing to the same piece…
What I find most interesting about the piece on deep poverty was that some of us pointed out that the poor would fall off the radar at the time TANF was passed. More interesting was the fact that the authors of the legislation specifically refused to track the women and children who would get the “opportunity” to lead even more precarious lives than they already did, The neolibs (both Democrat and Republican) knew that this would happen and just didn’t care.
