Alternative plans

So now that outright scam is over, nearly, and a space may have opened up to think actual alternatives, provided enough constituent pressure is put on democrats in congress to do the right thing (and it will take a significant amount), perhaps the Real Populism can be made to stand up and fight.

Some beginnings worth thinking about:

Progressive Shock Doctrine
History of a Liberal Shock Doctrine

Dean Baker
Ian Walsh
Robert Reich
(All three via.)
James K. Galbraith
• Draft of the No Bail-Outs Act

Panel of economist reactions at TPM
