Historic Experiment

Fortune sees a lot of spending and no play book:

When President Obama sits down today at his Oval Office Resolute desk (Queen Victoria's gift named for a British frigate), he will have on hand $350 billion in just-pledged rescue money for the nation's financial system - and the very likely prospect of a $825 billion-plus "economic recovery" package landing on his desk for signature within a month.

For somewhat less money, you can get your own reproduction of that famous desk at www.resolutedesk.com

I'd get one but after two days of paperwork wouldn't be able to see its top!
