Suggestions from readers for "reading list" items are gratefully reviewed, although sometimes space limits the number included.

  • Could The Fair Tax Movement Ever Replace The IRS? (Mark P. Cussen, Investopedia) A continuation of the "mini-article" length discussion 'behind the wall' yesterday.  This article discusses aspects not covered yesterday but is in agreement about some of the regressive taxation characteristics of taxing consumption rather than income.

Follow up:

  • U.S. Tries Candor to Assure China on Cyberattacks (David E. Sanger, New York Times) The U.S. has been forthcoming in revealing that they will increase the number of cyber warriors in the U.S. to 6,000. China has not reciprocated. See next article.

Near a banner offering him a "warm welcome," Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel urged officers at China's premier military university to work toward a new era of cooperation between the world's top military rivals.

But during his first trip to China as Pentagon chief, icy body language and barbs telegraphed a relationship utterly devoid of warmth and very much saddled by suspicion.


Today there are 14 more articles discussed 'behind the wall'. Eight of the articles are on investing topics.
