A couple of items to look at if the reader is interested. Sunday's NY Times business section had a number of good articles and columns about the year anniversary of the collapse of Lehman Brothers. Definately is worth a look.
On another topic, a blog that relates economics and theology that I find very good is Kruse Kronicle. He is providing a series of posts on key economic issues. The first dealt with scarcity, a concept accepted by economists but there are theologians who dispute that scarcity if a worthwhile starting point.
