Greider also has interesting material on the Democrats' connection to the S&L industry. I'd never heard about any of this, but he seems to have his facts straight on this point.

Bryan, if he's wrong about the material you know a lot about, what makes you think he has his facts straight on the subjects you know less about?
Shouldn't his obvious errors on cost/benefit, risk analysis, and corporate accountability reduce the prior probability (to you) that he's right on anything?
Good question. Sure, errors in one area raise the probability of errors in other areas. But he's a journalist. I expect him to be weak on analytics. The 5 W's of who-what-when-where-why are what he's trained to get right.
