"Companies are bastards, so you should be too" doesn't sit very well with me as a guiding philosophy for personal finance.

...So the WSJ and every other fiscally-conservative op/ed page in the country is railing about how bad Obama's economic policies will be.

It's just absolutely tragicomic watching them all try to explain how the best way to get us out of the hole we're in is to keep digging.

CEO Pay Increases in 2007

There's not much that can be said that can make me angrier than that. 

Oh, wait

What is the old statistic?

0.1% of the population has 99.9% of the wealth?

Something like that.

This is a good trend, but it's hard to be optimistic when the price is still $50 more than it was last year.

Economic Realities Are Killing Our Era of Fantasy Politics

This is a sobering read, and I suggest you forward it to everyone you know.

Been beating that drum for years.

If no one's listened to it before I doubt they will now. Not even with their pants down around their ankles and their shoes stolen out from under them.

... And 80% of AIG...

Stocks rallied today due to talk of The Fed opening another Resolution Trust Corporation.

Could just be talk. Could be a real, but costly solution.

Congress Told "We're Literally Maybe Days Away From A Complete Meltdown Of Our Financial System"

This could all lead to the biggest shock doctrine yet, or an emulation of Sweden during the 1990's who made a sizable profit off their banking efforts during an incredibly similar crisis.
