Oh Lordy, I guess Monday's gonna have to be Sebastian Mallaby Day. Teaser:

We've recently had a double opportunity. The boom of the 1990s boosted trust in business; the 2001 terrorist attacks boosted trust in government. But CEOs and politicians abused these gifts with scandals and incompetence. Such is the cost of corporate malfeasance and the Iraq war: Precious social capital is destroyed by leaders' avarice and hubris.

As the kids say... heh, indeed.
