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

  • Putin’s Approval in Russia Soars to Record, America’s Plunges to Near Zero (Wolf Richter, Wolf Street) Putin is a hero at home and and the Russia military is also at approval ratings not seen in decades. And now 39% of Russians think their elections are honest, up from 23% last year and 17%seven years ago. What has changed in Russian elections to improve their opinion? Absolutely nothing. Moral: Don't take survey poll responses literally - they are more about emotions than logic.
