Newspapers and Blogs, Working Together
The piece was built around an analysis of the various factors that have sent us plummeting from the surplus projected in 2001 to the red ink we're looking at now. My guess is a number of readers wondered whether that analysis was any good. Where did Leonhardt get his numbers? How did he craft the equations? Fair questions. Turns out, thought, that Leonhardt took to his blog Economix and wrote up the methodology, the sources, and the thinking behind the original piece. And since I think that kind of supplemental transparency is a Really Good Thing That Should Be Rewarded, I'm going to link to it.
