This weekend's must read

This weekend's must read. David Leonhardt's cover story in the N.Y. Times Magazine looks at the future of the US economy. As Washington comes running with smelling salts – a bailout bill, a stimulus package – to revive the fallen economy, a larger question emerges: What to do when the patient awakes? In THE BIG FIX, Leonhardt explains how the greatest challenge facing the Obama administration is creating a new engine of growth for the American economy – when historical drivers of expansion, such as Wall Street and Silicon Valley, seem tapped out.
