Good column yesterday by Thomas Friedman of the New York Times on the bailout plan. He does a good job explaining the interconnectedness of Main Street and Wall street. I particularly liked this:
"We’re all connected. As others have pointed out, you can’t save Main Street and punish Wall Street anymore than you can be in a rowboat with someone you hate and think that the leak in the bottom of the boat at his end is not going to sink you, too. The world really is flat. We’re all connected. “Decoupling” is pure fantasy."
