What’s news?

  • Insurance industry sheds 5,000 jobs. III with details.
  • Former budget director Peter Orszag clearly explains how Obama’s deficit commission would restructure Social Security.
  • New York Times reports on the lawsuit lending industry, wherein plaintiff’s attorneys borrow from hedge funds to bankroll class actions. Without commenting on the merits, I’ll just say caps on court awards would end the practice.
