Imagine him testifying on behalf of an end to all implicit guarantees, bailout promises, and the "too big to fail" doctrine. If you can't imagine it you have begun to grasp the nature of the actual political economy in which we live.” Sheldon’s column has also been reprinted in this weekend’s CounterPunch. (Congrats!)
