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 included.

Follow up:

  • Russia-Ukraine Crisis Threatens Europe Economy: Cutting Research (Simon Kennedy, Bloomberg) Exports demand reduction for the Eurozone and other EU countries would cause economic problems in the west, as would negative feedback from constricted financial relations. In addition, sanctions could disrupt 25% of Germany's energy supplies and 100% for Finland (which come from Russia). See also next article.
  • Russia Staring at Recession on Sanctions (Andra Timu, Henry Meyer and Olga Tanas, Bloomberg) Russia will suffer more than Europe according to these authors. They quote sources projecting two quarters of recession for Russia. See also preceeding article.
  • GIANT FLESH-EATING DEVIL CHICKENS roamed North Dakota (Lewis Page, The Register) Some 66 million years ago what are now the plains of North America were "overrun by terrifying swarms of enormous flesh-eating demon chickens". The creature stood about 10 feet tall and researchers have nicknamed it the "chicken from hell".

Today we discuss 13 additional articles 'behind the wall'.
