Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Obama CLAIMS to want a diversity of opinions in his administration.  I would settle for quarterly round tables consisting of his entire economic team, top Treasury people, if there are any besides Geithner, Bernanke, and a group of outsiders who are priviledged to ask questions and follow up those questions vigorously, with Obama presiding.  The outsiders should include Stiglitz, J. Gailbraith, Krugman, Roubini, Soros, Mason Gaffney, etc.  

Having the whole proceeding broadcast on CSPAN would be icing on the cake.  Obama could demonstrably fulfill his pledge to "seek a wide range of opinions" and the country could have the confidence that at least all serious options and opinions had been considered.
