Business Insider (David L)
New York Times. I though last year was a bad flu year…
MIT Technology Review (David L)
Daniel Obodovski (David L). Ugh.
BBC (David L)
Ambrose Evans-Pritchard, Telegraph
Juan Cole (Nikki)
Big Brother is Watching You Watch
We Are the Mighty
CIA Torture Report
New York Review of Books
Project Syndicate (David L)
Black Injustice Tipping Point
LAWCHA (martha r)
VICE (martha r). White victims of police brutality and their efforts to obtain justice.
NYPD Soft Coup
Max Blumenthal, Alternet
Guardian. That is actually positive. A “resolve” at this juncture could only be the mayor capitulating to the cops.
Alternet (furzy mouse). I wonder what happens if the crime rate does not go up.
New York Times. Editorial. Two in two days. I can’t recall a parallel in recent years.
Tennessean (martha r). A sorely-needed contrast.
Financial Times. Not sure this is all that significant until transport facilities are built, and if the falloff of shale gas output is as fast as the better analyses suggest, the economic case for construction may not be there.
Financial Times (David L)
Bloomberg. Surprised we have not heard about more of this sort of thing. Most major multinationals run their treasury operation as a profit center, meaning trading operation.
Scientific American (martha r)
Huffington Post (martha r, margarita f). As we will discuss next week, a much larger scale, 40 year experiment produced the opposite result, allowing employers to keep wages low and producing pauperization of the poor and greater wage disparity. Note that is the conclusion of a prominent socialist.
