Things to Come

A few things I'm considering posting on that I haven't gotten around to writing yet, due to time constraints:

- What the conservative NJ firebrand Steve Lonegan and the liberal D.C. blogger Matt Yglesias have in common.

- The challenges of predicting default for financial firms: why the Altman Z-Score model isn't recommended for financials and the limitations of alternative, market-based models.

- Looking at a couple of recent bankruptcies, e.g., that of Eddie Bauer: would the Altman Z-Score model have predicted bankruptcy two years ago?
