Buffet’s Berkshire Hathaway might get a credit downgrade. It’s the downgrade, not the credit default swap, that severely bruised AIG.

A great set of posts about bailing out auto companies. Invidious comparisons, Labor’s love lost, Save the rust belt, Right to work. (I wish that Megan McArdle had categories on her blog; it’d be so much easier to get these links.)

Lessons from the Great Depression.

Recently, I wished for a Techmeme/Memeorandum service that’d compile news stories and blog reactions focused on economics. I set up an Economics folder of links in Friendfeed (Brad DeLong, Megan McArdle, Paul Krugman, Naked Capitalism, Calculated Risk, Planet Money et. al. are all imaginary friends, tho).
