• Headline of the Day, from the Washington Post: “Awash in cash, Bush asks donors not to give more than $1 million – for now.”

• In case you missed it, Baffler contributing editor David Graeber talked about the history of debt for a radio series on BBC, and all the episodes are available for listening online.

• Today in Billionaires: According to Forbes, New York City has the most billionaires of any city in the world (seventy-eight billionaires, at the moment), followed closely by Moscow and Hong Kong. San Francisco is farther down on the list than you may have imagined (tenth); maybe SF billionaires aren’t the most numerous, they’re just the most annoying.
