The Economic Week in Review

Just a few observations and links

John McCain laid out his economic plan.
Obama's plan to strengthen the economy is on his web page.
Hillary Clinton's web page on strengthening the middle class links to several of her plans. Her policy director, Neera Tanden, issued a statement in response to the McCain plan.

The World Bank warned of the severe effects of rising food prices around the world. It makes you stop and appreciate all you have when you realize that 100 million people are worried about where their next meal may come from. I was happy to hear that President Bush ordered $200 million in emergency aid to alleviate the food shortages in Africa and other parts of the world.
