fascinating article from the new york times’ very own, paul krugman. he takes a look at how long-term unemployment for some is a detriment to the entire economy and america’s national deficit.

this article sounds pretty convincing in how effective jim yong kim has been in implementing changes that have stumbled those who have come before him. but it is, indeed true, that his background doesn’t scream out “bank president”. but hey, the world bank is there to tackle the very problems he’s been doing on the ground anyways!
we shall see…
good, short, sweet article by nicholas kristof about the political and economic ramifications should a strike on iran occur within this year (and pretty much, how there’s a consensus against this)
great, illuminating read
paul krugman from the new york times has an interesting article on oil prices, job creation, and how foolish republicans have been for claiming what they claim. they want america to drill and dig into the earth to tap untouched resources. true, we’ve left some sources alone. however, drilling has increased since the bp oil spill and us oil production has increased. yet, the more substantial causes of rising oil prices is from higher global demands and instability in the middle east.
secondly, increasing drilling operations just straight up means not that many more jobs, unlike what republicans claim.
so why are republicans saying all this? read to find out!
a fascinating, and pretty accurate article describing the phenomenon of multinational companies raking in billions have superseded more than a fair share of internationally recognized countries (in wealth, personnel/citizens, and political clout)
