Barack Obama should concentrate on three things in the first 100 days of his first term - the economy, the economy, and the economy.

Of course, many other policy aspects of the mess that faces him bear on the economy - health care certainly, Iraq of course, and energy. Education matters, too, in the long run, but even longer than more drilling would take to stabilize the oil market.

In keeping with this needed stress on the economic health of America, I'm offering a new feature at top right with a blog list of economics sites. I expect to keep adding to and subtracting from it as time - and hopefully the crisis - passes.

One interesting site that didn't have a feed for the blog list: Nouriel Roubini's home page. Roubini had been predicting economic catastrophe for a long time, and facts have caught up with him.
