    Hi, Dr. Reese.

    While reading the NYT especially the op/ed section looking for a good article for assignment 1, I run into a lot of articles dealing with the Wall Street Crisis. I have to admit I know absolutely nothing about stocks and what is going on. Sure, I know the facts like the government bought out Fannie Mae, and JP Morgan is almost bankrupt (something along those lines) but I don’t understand what these events mean. So a few prominent companies are going up in flames but how do they affect the economy? What does mortgage rates and stocks have to do with our country’s economic slump? I would like to understand how all these events relate. Is there any possibility you can post something here in the blog? Thanks!

    One mistake–I meant to say the buyout of Merrill Lynch not JP Morgan.
