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.

The "WWRT" discussion is abbreviated and late today due to technical difficulties.

  • Russia and Ukraine Agree on Steps to End Crisis (NBC News) U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said today that Ukraine and Russia have agreed that militants must stop violence, lay down illegal weapons and return seized buildings to rightful owners. Ukraine will offer amnesty to protesters (except for those accused of capital crimes). The agreement followed meetings in Geneva involving Russia, Ukraine, the U.S. and the EU.

Follow up:

  • How Finance Gutted Manufacturing (Suzanne Berger, Boston Review) Hat tip to Marvin Clark. A provocative analysis and discussion of the role of optimized financial returns (short-term gains) in the destruction of vision driven enterprise (long-term gains). There are ten accompanying response articles including one from GEI contributor Dean Baker.

Today there are 8 articles discussed 'behind the wall'.
