On a tangent: Understanding the issues facing our economy


It occurred to me over the last week or so that there is this raging economic debate going on in this country (not to mention Europe) and I felt like I wanted to understand it beyond my own hunches and biases (we all have them no matter which party you call home). The result, some of my hunches were true, some of my biases were false and regardless this is a very serious problem for all of us and we need to get this right.

Herewith then are a few articles I found illuminating and balanced:

Time Magazine – What U.S. Economic Recovery? Five Destructive Myths

Techcrunch – A Tale Of Two Countries: The Growing Divide Between Silicon Valley And Unemployed America 

The Atlantic – Why Unemployment Matters

Have any other links?
