Econintersect: Every day our editors collect the most interesting things they find from around the internet and present a summary "reading list" which will include very brief summaries of why each item has gotten our attention. Suggestions from readers for "reading list" items are gratefully reviewed, although sometimes space limits the number accepted.

Today we have a focus on the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP).

  • Gary Webb, RIP (Marc Cooper, LA Weekly News) Hat tip to Roger Erickson. A ten-year old story very much worth reading. It's about the corruption of self interest that can infect a media company, misinform the populace and destroy lives.

Follow up:

  • Aspen and the End of Snow (Nathaniel Rich, Men's Journal) Hat tip to Naked Capitalism. The disappearance of snow on the lower reaches of Aspen Mountain by 2100 will have far more important consequences than lost skiing.

The next five articles are about the TTP (Trans Pacific Partnership). See also GEI News: Wikileaks Releases Environmental Chapter of TPP
