Great explanations: Steve Coll blogs the stimulus plan

Thursday, March 19, 2009

Veteran journalist Steve Coll has turned his investigative skills on the SEC’s relationship with Wall Street, the secret history of the CIA and the legacy of the Bin-Ladens. Now he is taking on a great civic feat and endeavoring to read all 407 pages of the stimulus plan. He’s been blogging as he goes, in what reads like a combination of explanatory journalism and travelogue. Steve Coll is the president of the New America Foundation and staff writer for The New Yorker. He has come up for air this morning to give us the lowdown on his journey through this colossal document.
