Bush Wants Second $350 Billion

David Cho and Lori Montgomery, The Washington Post: "Senior Bush administration officials, consulting with the Obama transition team, have prepared a plan to ask lawmakers for the second half of the $700 billion financial rescue package despite intense opposition in Congress, sources familiar with the discussions said.

PTSD Victim Booted from US Army for "Misconduct"

Kelly Kennedy, The Army Times: "After serving two tours in Iraq - tours filled with killing enemy combatants and watching close friends die - Sgt. Adam Boyle, 27, returned home expecting the Army to take care of him. Instead, service member advocates and Boyle's mother say his chain of command in the 3rd Psychological Operations Battalion at Fort Bragg, NC, worked to end his military career at the first sign of weakness."

Die Hartz IV Gesetze wirken, aber wie?

Prof. Dr. Helga Spindler ist Professorin für Öffentliches Recht mit dem Schwerpunkt Sozial- und Arbeitsrecht an der Universität Duisburg/Essen und ist dieser Frage wissenschaftlich zu Leibe gerückt.

Tools for a New Economy

Robert Pollin, The Boston Review: "The collapse of the housing bubble and the speculative market for subprime mortgages demonstrates, yet again, the simple point that financial markets need tight regulation. Since September 2008 a series of massive bailouts by the US Treasury and Federal Reserve has prevented financial markets from experiencing a 1929-style collapse.
