Here is an interesting article and video from the WSJ on how President Obama is planning on raising money for his campaign. For the sake of the quiz you may either read the article, watch the video, or both. Why do you think that there are so many rules regarding campaign donations? Do the regulations put a disincentive on contributing to a campaign?
Tonight President Obama addressed congress with a new proposal to aid in the economic recovery. Although this is a macroeconomic topic, I'd like you to read this WSJ post that collects some thoughts from prominent economists. For our current events quiz I'll only hold you accountable for the first four "reactions". Feel free to read on though if you're interested!
