Leverage

Progressives spend a lot of time talking about the need to use our newfound corporate leverage (courtesy of the various bailout rescue packages we’re handing out) to jump-start broader reform. The auto industry, for example, is now a prime target for mandatory “greening.” Well, maybe. I say we use the Citi bailout to stop corporations from choosing awful names for newly-built stadiums (I mean, Citi Field? Really? I don’t even watch baseball and I’m appalled). Come to think of it, doesn’t FedEx need a quick infusion of government cash?
