My good friend Ken Troske, presently at the University of Kentucky, has been appointed by Senator Mitch McConnell to the committee that oversees the spending undertaken under the TARP bailout program.
Amazingly, this committee has been operating for over a year without a single economist.
Kick some bailout butt, Ken, and congratulations. At worst, you'll have enough good stories to keep you going for decades.
Who was my favorite student this term?
