  • A mea culpa from the chief executive of Goldman Sachs. 
  • Gulp: Gideon Rachman believes think tanks are in for some lean times, and judging by the Japanese experience, he might be right.
  • Attention Stephen Grenville: more misleading graphs! TIME and The American Scene both argue that America's unemployment rate is not that different to previous recessions.
  • Note the subtle argumentative technique in this defence of protectionism: when one approves of the economic growth created by freeing up world economies, one refers to 'prosperity'. But when you don't, it is merely 'consumption'.
  • Does the financial crisis foreshadow a structural realignment in Southeast Asian economies?
