Open Thread

by Mary

A couple of tidbits for tonight.

Balloon Juice has a economics poll with questions that real people might find relevant. (Which probably means it would be too deep for our deeply unserious media.)

Avedon Carol linked to this article in the Village Voice which does a great job of explaining the financial crisis. What I wonder after reading this is when we hear that we have to cover the losses for all the bets made with AIG, does that mean the American taxpayer will be on the hock for the entire $600 Trillion gamble, or just part of it?
