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.

  • Inside OPEC room, Naimi declares price war on U.S. shale oil (Alex Lawler, Amena Bakr and Dimitry Zhdannikov, Reuters) IT'S WAR!!!! The U.S. has the financial resources to win the war but will a dysfunctional government chose to fight? This is an opportunity for Obama, and opportunity for a new Republican majority Congress but neither may have the resolve to pursue victory - particularly if it would appear to involve any compromise.  More on oil 'behind the wall'.

Follow up:

  • CNN Poll: Majority of Americans say things are going well (Alexandra Jaffe, CNN) Hat tip to Alun Hill. For the first time in almost 8 years more than half of Americans think things are going well in the U.S. A new CNN/ORC International poll found 52% of Americans said things are going well but less than than that (1/3) say the economy is improving while a higher number (41%) say the economy has stabilized. Men are more positive than are women and the East and Midwest are more positive than the South and West.
