It's extraordinary that stuff this obvious is taking so long to implement (such as making savings "opt out" rather than "opt in"). This article makes Obama look good.
However, for a guy that values "top experts" it's a damn shame he isn't appointing them to his non-economic/non-military cabinet positions. And it's a damn shame that criticism about his picks are so faint by the general public. It's a victory of ideology, identity politics, and above all apathy over technocratic potential.
