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.

  • Republicans Gain From Voter Anger Over Obama’s Economy (Mike Dorning and Jonathan Allen, Bloomberg) More than five years after the recession ended, ordinary Americans still feel pinched. Wages and incomes have been stagnant. Econintersect: The "hope and change" president cast his lot with Wall Street and Main street finally couldn't take it any more. See next article.

Follow up:

  • Republican Senate brings TPP shocker closer (Unconventional Economist, Macro Business) The irony of the interpretation of the Republican victory as a Main Street revolt is that Macro Business sees the change in the U.S. Senate making the passing of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) free trade pact more likely. Free trade has become more and more unpopular for Main Street America.
