Economic String Theory

Here are a few articles of political theme that I never got around to blogging about. I'm most curious to hear more about the topic mentioned in the first.

Is the stimulus plan constitutional? Can banks back out? Does the link between campaign donations and bailout money matter legally?

Here is an article about some historical problems of Congressional Democrats. (Sadly, the Republicans also failed to "clean up" government and pork during their watch. But I don't have a good link for that tragedy.)

Finally, I found it humorous that amidst all of the events of bailouts and earmarks, a new study finds that emphasizing and rewarding effort and persistence (as opposed to intelligence or talent) best promotes success in children.
