Jesse Eisinger | ProPublica | 30 November 2011

Eisinger's piece is a great example why we should hate the amorphous term
  "Wall Street." Inside the world of finance, there's a "secret confederacy"
  who knows the game is rigged and wants change [6]Comments

[7]How Assad Stayed In Power

Tony Badran | Foreign Affairs | 1 December 2011

Russia has blocked UN action. It sees Syria as buffer against Turkey, ally
  against US, and base for projecting power into Middle East. Danger comes
  from Turkey—which has been slow to back Syrian rebels, but is doing so now

Richard Teitelbaum | Bloomberg Markets Magazine | 29 November 2011

More than three years later, we're still unwinding the cozy pre-crisis
  relationship Wall Street maintained with its regulators. At minimum, this
  story suggests a profound carelessness by one of America's most powerful
  regulators [10]Comments

Katherine Ozment | Boston Magazine | 30 November 2011

Cautionary tale of modern parenting: "I’d bought into the self-esteem dogma
  — the idea that bathing our children in good feeling and positive
  reinforcement arms them with the confidence they need to lead better lives."
  A mistake [12]Comments

Anonymous | WSJ | 18 November 2011

Just because you're paranoid, doesn't mean there isn't a vast
  multibillion-dollar industry dedicated to tracking your every move. WSJ has

[15]Is Pricey Champagne Worth It?

Alex Halberstadt | Gilt Taste | 29 November 2011

Depends. Worst thing you can do is buy expensive vintage champagne and then
  drink it too soon, before flavours have developed. Much is drunk this way
  though. People can't be bothered to wait. But there are alternatives
