Bailout to Nowhere  —  Not so long ago, corporate giants with names like PanAm, ITT and Montgomery Ward roamed the earth.  They faded and were replaced by new companies with names like Microsoft, Southwest Airlines and Target.  The U.S. became famous for this pattern of decay and new growth.

Depression Economics Returns  —  The economic news, in case you haven't noticed, keeps getting worse.  Bad as it is, however, I don't expect another Great Depression.  In fact, we probably won't see the unemployment rate match its post-Depression peak of 10.7 percent, reached in 1982 (although I wish I was sure about that).
