Those trying to make sense of the current self-inflicted national “crisis” surrounding the national debt and the topsy-turvy economy would do well to make economist Dean Baker’s blog, “Beat the Press”  a regular part of their daily web surfing.
Although the blog is chiefly dedicated to the mistakes of the media in covering fiscal and economic issues (Baker writes books and longer essays that can be found at the Center for Economic Policy Research ), it rarely fails to provide useful insights into the issues on which he’s taking reporters and editors to task.
This is a man to whom more people need to listen.
