If You Aren’t Reading Bailout Sleuth Daily, You Should

Lynne Kiesling

Chris Carey’s work at Bailout Sleuth is supremely important for holding the federal government accountable for its decisions and actions with respect to their financial bailout plans. He’s carrying our water.

Especially after yesterday’s change of federal strategy, much commented on elsewhere. I think Katharine Mangu-Ward sums it up pretty well at Reason when she notes that yesterday even those who had high hopes for the federal government’s bailout plans “figured out that the bailout wasn’t going to be a smooth transition to economic health guided by a selfless, rational public servant.”
