More About Money

Mark likes this idea from Benjamin Barber of Demos: Give banks vouchers that must be used within three months for a set handful of purposes. Hard to see a downside.

On the school side of things, the IJ published a chart telling how much federal money the schools in the area would receive without publishing a caveat explaining that the money is specifically targeted, and schools may very possibly not be able to use much of it. It depends on the school and each school's particular programs and needs--much as Dryden for years was assumed to have an extra several tens of thousands of dollars that was earmarked for Pre-K, a program we didn't have. So don't believe everything you read.
