Today, Mike graphed too-big-to-fail banks, looked at the problem historically and looked at the state of the financial-reform debate. Suzy explained what health-care reform will mean for immigrants and how pro-reform attorneys general are going on the offensive to defend the health law. And I called for a progressive consumption tax and a more assertive Supreme Court shortlist. Here's what we missed:
1) Paul Krugman cites research suggesting that the gap between U.S. and European growth is due to Europeans working less and taking longer vacations.
2) The Atlantic's Nicole Allan looks at the dimming prospects for Abu Dhabi's proposed carbon-neutral planned city.
3) Getting laid off doesn't just hurt workers; it hurts their kids, and their kids' chances of going to college.
5) Dean Baker, who warned about the housing bubble as it was happening, and Kevin Hassett, who co-wrote "Dow 36,000," nevertheless agree that the federal government should promote work-sharing.
