Econintersect: Every day our editors collect the most interesting things they find from around the internet and present a summary "reading list" which will include very brief summaries of why each item has gotten our attention. Suggestions from readers for "reading list" items are gratefully reviewed, although sometimes space limits the number included.

  • How USPS Could Save the Economy, Change Your Life (David Dayen, The Progressive Populist) Dayen describes ten different applications for postal banking in the U.S. This idea will be fought tooth and nail by some who will say it is a 'slippery slope to socialism'. Some of these think the USPS shouldn't be allowed to remain a non-profit corporation with government sponsorship (but no government financial support). But others are on the same page as Dayen - See for example GEI Opinion by Ellen Brown (here and here and here) and by John Lounsbury (here).
