New Yorker article


I read an article from The New Yorker that covered the financial situation. I enjoyed the detail and specifics covered. I think the article gives the reader a better understanding into what was going on. The article was written by James Stewart. I follow his article in StreetMoney.

Now since a subscription is required, I cannot post the site here. But here is the abstract that they provide. I strongly suggest that you read this article. If you do not like the New Yorker past this article or cannot afford the subscription, there is always the library.

Vanity Fair article on Paulson


I recently read a very informative article about Henry Paulson in this month's Vanity Fair. The author, Todd Purnum, was able to get sort of a play by play during his term as Secretary of The Treasury. The article was also able to shine a light Paulson's take on the job, why he took the job, and what he was going through during the crisis. The article has enough detail to engage the reader but not too much to bore the non financial individual. Congratulations to Todd Purdum on writing this. I hope you enjoy!
