MoJo’s own Kevin Drum is moderating the keynote Netroots Nation panel on “Building a 21st Century Economy”—with New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine, Change to Win Chair Anna Burger and economist Dean Baker—at noon on Saturday. Rumor has it that C-Span may pick up the feed; you can also check out the live video below. While you wait, why not browse some of MoJo’s fine economics coverage—Kevin‘s pieces on cap and trade and bank nationalization, James Galbraith on why the stimulus isn’t big enough, David Corn‘s expose of Phil Gramm’s role in bringing about the financial crisis, Nomi Prinstimeline of the debacle, and last but not least David Cay Johnston‘s modest proposal for fixing the tax code.

TIME IS RUNNING OUT!

We have an ambitious $350,000 online fundraising goal this month and it's truly crunch time: About 15 percent of our yearly online giving usually comes in during the final week of the year, and in "No Cute Headlines or Manipulative BS," we explain why we simply can't afford to come up short right now.

The bottom line: Corporations and powerful people with deep pockets will never sustain the type of journalism Mother Jones exists to do. And advertising or profit-driven ownership groups will never make time-intensive, in-depth reporting viable.

That's why donations big and small make up 74 percent of our budget this year. There is no backup to keep us going, no alternate revenue source, no secret benefactor. If readers don’t donate, we won’t be here. It's that simple.

And if you can help us out with a donation right now, all online gifts will be matched thanks to an incredibly generous matching gift pledge.
