The SEC accuses Goldman Sachs of fraud in a civil suit. An audit of Lehman Brothers reveals it used a shady accounting practice to conceal $50 billion in debts. An investigation of Wa-Mu shows it was rife with fraud, including fabricated loan documents. Clearly, these bankers can’t stop themselves from engaging in deceit to make money.

It is reassuring to learn that the President is both listening to serious policy advisers while taking advantage of experienced, successful political advisers to get those policies enacted. So they must be succeeding, right?

Igor Volsky posted a chart predicting some outcomes for the Senate Health Care reform. Ezra Klein endorsed it. I capture these predictions so we can look back and see if they were correct.
