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.
- Poor man’s polar vortex to make shocking summer return in eastern U.S. next week (Jason Samenow, The Washington Post) This is not a surprise to readers who follow GEI's weekly weather and climate updates by climate economist Sig Silber. He maintains reference page with auto updates from NOAA. The link is at the end of every weekly news article (and occasional special editions).
- Japan Inc.’s Orders for Equipment and Machinery Totally Collapse (Wolf Richter, Wolf Street - formerly Testosterone Pit) Econintersect has reported that accounts like this are out of context. Terms like "total collapse" ignore that the latest data has simply come back to long-term trend lines (uptrends). See Japan: Machinery Orders Collapse (or Do They?).
- Where the foreclosures are: 10 top states (Chris Kahn, Bankrate.com, MSN Real Estate) The west is healing. Nine of the ten top states are east of the Mississippi.
- Clean Air Protections for Hiker and Forest Health (Appalachian Mountain Club) This volunteer outdoor recreation organization has been monitoring environmental conditions in New Hampshire's White Mountains for nearly 30 years. Over that time they have observed significant decline of ozone, significant improvement in long-distance visibility on the haziest days and an 80% decline in acid rain.
