Pleasant Surprises December 3, 2008

In a lot of my classes we have been discussing which policies will materialize in the new Obama administration.  Obama made a lot of populist promises on the trail to the White House, especially in the primaries.  He started to moderate these promises as the general election started.  Apparently he has started to listen to his economic advisers and dropped the windfall profits tax on oil companies (HT: Hit & Run).  Apparently some environmentalists are upset.  After Obama won the election, his staff and surrorgates, realizing Obama had promised everything to everyone, started working very hard to temper expecations about his administration.  This is the second policy I know of that he has used the “quietly drop off the website method.”
