Happy holidays from Economy Watch

I'll be off all this week celebrating Christmas, so Economy Watch will go dark until Monday, December 28.

Be sure to keep checking in on the Business section of The Post, which you can see by clicking here.

Here's a terrific story in Monday's paper by The Post's Binya Appelbaum and David Cho illustrating how the Federal Reserve was blind to the coming sub-prime crisis because it didn't understand the risks banks were taking.

And check out some of our other Business blogs, including Cecilia Kang's Post Tech and Rob Pegoraro's Faster Forward. Merry Christmas and happy holidays to everyone!
