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.

  • E-cigarettes contain 10 times amount of carcinogens: Japan research (Agence France-Presse, MSN News) A new research report finds that ENDS (Electronic Nicotine Delivery System) may be far more hazardous to your health than traditional tobacco cigarettes. Only one brand was tested but all e-cigarettes will probably be in the lab very soon.

Follow up:

  • OPEC Leaves Output Ceiling Unchanged (Wael Mahdi, Maher Chmaytelli and Laura Hurst, Bloomberg) Oil plummeted in price following OPEC's decision to leave oil production limits unchanged.
