Tag Archives: US Government to default

Aug. 15, 2011 The New Yorker

On Aug. 15, 2011 The New Yorker’s James Surowiecki wrote “The Business Of Austerity” about how the Republican Congress caused the US Government to default. By harming the full faith and credit of the United States they caused the stock market to fall, hurting their friends on Wall Street. Austerity hurts recovery.

Dana Goodyear wrote “Grub” about eating bugs as a source of protein.

Elizabeth Kolbert wrote “Sleeping With The Enemy” about what happened to the Neanderthals. Apparently they were not as artistic or creative as humans.
