Oct. 31st edition of Meet the Bloggers

Since it's Halloween, we couldn't think of anything scarier to discuss on Meet the Bloggersthan "The Frightening Economy."  The blood-sucking greed of CEO vampires!  The terror of checking your 401k status!  The spooky specter of socialism!  The rotting remains of Republican economic philosophy!  The horrors of a Bush-McCain economy!

Trick or treat?  The American people have been tricked -- big time. First, by bewitching promises of no money down loans, zero percent interest, and housing prices that would supernaturally rise indefinitely; and now by CEOs and Wall Street warlocks who cried “Crisis!” and demanded a bailout, then retreated to their haunted mansions -- or luxury spas!

This Friday at 1pm ET/10 am PT, we’ll talk to economist Dean Baker, co-director of theCenter for Economic and Policy Research, about just how terrifying this economy really is.  Joining Baker will be bloggers Hale Stewart (The Bonddad Blog) and Isaiah Poole (Campaign for America's Future), who will weigh in on what’s ahead for the economy and what the next administration can and should do to get us back on the right track.

So check out the articles below and join us for a live blog discussion on Meet the BloggersFriday at 1pm ET/10 am PT to chat with our featured bloggers.  That is, if you're not too scared!
