Saturday TARP Blogging

I stuck the toddler in front of Monster's, Inc. this morning so that I could read the full text of the bill that has been approved by Congress and offer my readers (all five of you!) a basic summary. Trouble is, I can't seem to find a revised version. I understand the core of what's being done is the same as the old one but I'd like to see the new version. Anyone seen a PDF of the new bill?

Via the new NPR blog Planet Money (http://www.npr.org/blogs/money/2008/10/fine_print_a_backdoor_bailout.html) , which was started by the guys who did the awesome This American Life special called The Giant Pool of Money *http://www.thislife.org/Radio_Episode.aspx?episode=355). TGPoM does a great job of explaining at least some of the factors that created the bubble and the current crisis.
