Anonymous | n+1 | 12 January 2011

Excellent essay on American elitism. Power, money admired across society.
  Contempt reserved for cultural, intellectual distinction. "No one would
  think to call a foul-mouthed general an elitist, even though he commands an
  army"

Jason Kirby | Maclean's | 24 January 2011

Facebook's move to raise capital privately through Goldman Sachs is further
  evidence that stock markets have lost their historic role as a place for

Mark Gimein | Dead Letter | 13 January 2011

Why was Malthus wrong in predicting imminent over-population? Partly because
  he misread, or deliberately misrepresented, his sources. Demographers on
  whom he relied foresaw very slow growth, or even decline, in population

Book of the Day

[10]Our Man in Havana
    Links:
      10. http://thebrowser.com/recommended/our-man-havana-by-graham-greene

-by Graham Greene -What I like about this book is that, although the United
  States  does not play a role directly, Greene captures beautifully the
  Cold-War contradictions of U.S. policy in the region
