So an occasional poster on this list I saw in Washington this weekend happened to sit next to Joe Stiglitz on a flight from Ottawa to DC. He said Stiglitz said that (while at the CEA) he'd proposed to Clinton making a matrix of winners and losers (workers, industry groups, etc.) from administration policies. Clinton said it sounded good, but he should run it past Treasury. Treasury nixed it because, as Stiglitz put it, Goldman Sachs would have come out on top.
