Blogging through the Financial Crisis

I've had quite a few blog postings recently on various aspects of the financial crisis and the state of the economy. Scrolling through them to find something of interest is not the easiest thing to do. Since I'm out of pocket briefly, I thought it might be useful to present a list of recent postings for your convenience. The last one listed is February 2, 2009, but that end-point is arbitrary. There are plenty of relevant ones before that if you are interested.

    Bob, you’ve done a lot of great work on the financial crisis. Most notably on mark-to-market and the somewhat misleading information put out by the Treasury with regard to the stress tests.
