Rob: not exactly sure what you are after ("persuasive" to whom? undergrads, politicos, academics, orthodox?)
There are many short pieces on our blog. Newest one is by Pavlina Tcherneva and very good.

GOLDMAN SACHS VAMPIRE SQUID GETS HANDCUFFED <http://neweconomicperspectives.blogspot.com/2010/04/goldman-sachs-vampire-squid-gets.html>
L. Randall Wray
In a startling turn of events, the SEC announced a civil fraud lawsuit against Goldman Sachs. I use the word startling because a) the SEC has done virtually nothing in the way of enforcement for years, managing to sleep through every bubble and bust in recent memory, and b) Government Sachs has been presumed to be above the law since it took over Washington during the Clinton years. Of course, there is nothing startling about bad behavior at Goldman-that is its business model. The only thing that separates Goldman on that score from all other Wall Street financial institutions is its audacity to claim that it channels God as it screws its customers. But when the government is your handmaiden, why not be audacious? http://neweconomicperspectives.blogspot.com/2010/04/goldman-sachs-vampire-squid-gets.html
