What you should be reading – FX NX

Middle East – Zakaria gives a lot of background that should improve any extemp speech on the subject, and this NPR story on Syria discusses the root religious differences.

Ehrenreich (you should know who she is) on being poor.

Norris on the tax code and possible changes to it.

Brooks discusses inequality and the minimum wage and Weissmann responds. (The original Brooks article can be found here; if you expand the Comments section and select the NYT Picks tab, you’ll find a lot of comments every bit as astute as Weissmann’s – another mini economics education.)
