Tonight's presidential debate was supposed to be about foreign policy, but with the financial system edging toward a breakdown, all questions seem to be on the table. "I am not restrained from asking questions about the financial crisis," moderator Jim Lehrer told the New York Times.
Sens. McCain and Obama have both stressed the need for "reform." But the candidates differ substantially on what other changes they would make to the financial system, and it's hard to pin down their ideas for specific changes.
ProPublica has created a page to keep tabs on the candidates’ market proposals. We'll update it as the candidates develop new ideas, modify old ones and perhaps scrap them. We've also asked both campaigns to give us more detail on their proposals. We’re still waiting for their responses.
Readers are welcome to e-mail suggestions for new categories, and let us know if we've missed something important that either candidate has said.
