I love Etsy. Not only does it contain the coolest handmade goods (check out a winning collection of John Golden's prints, some beautiful art-deco bookplates, and nifty Two Trick Pony notecards), but it's also home to sparkling political wit.
Ok, this Etsy member actually just reposted an old Dave Barry column about last year's attempts at reviving our economy, but I thought it was appropriate in light of the House passing the $819 billion stimulus package.
If you're in the mood for more serious fare about the aforementioned package, check out the following links:
Big government champion Ron Paul LOVES the economic stimulus package!
Do you know what's even more exciting than listening to the NewsHour with Jim Lehrer? Reading a transcript of the NewsHour with Jim Lehrer! Seriously, this interview with economists James Galbraith and Martin Feldstein is worth a read.
Would you believe that economists hold a variety of opinions on the stimulus package? Read a smattering of them here.
