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 (and sometimes longer ones) 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.

  • Europe’s titans hold on to their cash (Sarah Gordon, Financial Times) Austerity produces a shortage of money so why wouldn't companies hoard cash? The "Austerians" say they must improve confidence to get a recovery and corporations say they have confidence in whatever is left of the money that they can hang on to. Brilliant policy!!!

Follow up:

  • In Columbus County, another death row conviction faces a challenge (Joseph Neff, Raleigh News & Observer) North Carolina is the first and only state with an independent body dedicated to investigating post-conviction claims of factual innocence. The North Carolina Innocence Inquiry Commission was established by the state in 2006. In the latest case reviewed, a 1993 murder conviction resulting in the death penalty, an astounding story of hidden evidence apparently resulting in the conviction of an innocent man has emerged. This is not the first such case that this situation has been found. In this case, the children of the victims still believe the man convicted is the murderer and the prosecuting district attorney still believes the man convicted is guilty. Read this article and marvel at the callousness and carelessness of prosecution, as well as the fact that those close to the case are not able (or willing) to consider the newly revealed exculpatory evidence.
