house approves TARP


via bloomberg. following on the senate assent, this will now go to the president. it should take some weeks to get the program structured.

``The issue is stopping the panic,'' said Adam Posen, deputy director of the Peterson Institute for International Economics in Washington. ``The plan's not perfect, but it's certainly better than doing nothing. Now Treasury has to be very aggressive about purchasing a wide range of assets very quickly.''


UPDATE: president bush signed it this same day.
