Austan Goolsbee was on the Daily Show last night! Full episode here. Some of you might remember him as the winner of "DC's Funniest Celebrity Contest." Here!
He talked about the Volcker Rule. WSJ has lots of videos on this (Volcker Rule vs. Basel Committee Proposals) Economics of Contempt responded.
Campus Progress quoted Jon Stewart on Students Over Banks!

Sorry I haven't blogged in a while...last week was hectic because I was catching up on classwork and work work. And I now have a roommate and a dog!
