bonds and the bear
Bonds? We have bonds? I have a lot of thoughts on the local bond scene you know, but no time to recompile them here. The general tone of the NYT piece does remind me to check if the video of Lawrence Lessig's visit to Pitt a few months ago is online yet. It is and available here.
What does Lessig have to do with the NY Times story on municipal bonds? If you are a believer in good government, transparent government or anything in between you want to watch Lessig's stump speech. Trust me.
And the Bear? No, it's not a Greg Evigan reference. Watch the whole Lessig lecture to the end.
