[1]Libya, Waiting to See
    Links:
      1. http://b.rw/eI805C

Aaron Bady | Zunguzungu | 26 March 2011

Fine, reflective essay on wisdom of Libyan intervention, emphasising
  Qaddafi's record of imperialism and warmongering in Africa. He's a cancer.
  And the UN intervention is chemo-therapy. Poisonous and awful, but worth it
  in the end

[2]Show Them The Money, Old China
    Links:

John Garnaut | Sydney Morning Herald | 26 March 2011

Report from Chongqing, where the gangland boss is a former arms trader. He
  controls the economy in cahoots with the mayor. Communist Party's local
  boss, Bo Xilai, campaigns against mafia, but only seems to clear out the
  lower levels

John Sanford | Stanford Medicine | 17 March 2011

How dead do donors have to be before organs can be removed? Donor shortage
  is a major problem. But transplantation after cardiac death (DCD) is a
  controversial policy that permits organ removal from patients in deep comas

David Warsh | Economic Principals | 27 March 2011

Michael Porter, Harvard Business School management guru, grew famous
  offering competitive strategies to firms, regions, nations. In 2006 his
  consulting firm set about rebuilding Libya's reputation. Should he be
  repenting now?

[5]Human Complexity: The Strategic Game of ? and ?
    Links:
      5. http://b.rw/eJf6L9

Rick Bookstaber | Rick Bookstaber's Blog | 25 March 2011

Why military theory is more effective at addressing economic complexity than
  neo-classical methods. Interaction "between the market participants and the
  regulators, is not a game, but a war". Complex but interesting argument

[6]A Murder Foretold
    Links:
      6. http://b.rw/erxYx5

David Grann | New Yorker | 25 March 2011

Epic tale of murky political intrigue in Guatemala and how one attorney,
  investigating controversial murder case, accurately predicted his own
  assassination. Long, powerful article with a plot straight out of a John
  Grisham novel
