Weekend update: research links from the week

This last couple weeks there has been little to note, but here are a few things I saved links to this week and last, including this magazine article:
The Economic Consequences of Mr. Bush, by Joseph Stiglitz in Vanity Fair.
When we look back someday at the catastrophe that was the Bush administration, we will think of many things: the tragedy of the Iraq war, the shame of Guantánamo and Abu Ghraib, the erosion of civil liberties. The damage done to the American economy does not make front-page headlines every day, but the repercussions will be felt beyond the lifetime of anyone reading this page.
