What you should be reading – FX NX

Omar on the personal side of the question of US forces remaining in Afghanistan, and Stewart on the Russia/Ukraine crisis.

Tritch on history’s answers to the minimum wage question, and Krugman on the latest GOP report on poverty.(Do all GOP antipoverty plans involve cutting the social safety net and cutting taxes on the wealthy?) Use some of the quotes Tritch provides in an extemp speech and your speech is likely to stand out to your judge (I rarely hear that sort of historical perspective). Plus, the idea of the hammock theory is the sort of imagery that sets up a good NX introduction.
