What We Read Today 27 January 2014

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 of why each item has gotten our attention. Suggestions from readers for "reading list" items are gratefully reviewed, although sometimes space limits the number accepted.

  • Study: Vt. Should Allow VEDA to Be State Bank (Warren Johnston, Valley News) Hat tip to Public Banking Institute. The proposal is that the Vermont Economic Development Authority (VEDA) should be chartered to function as a state bank. To do so would add thousands of jobs in the state, save the state millions of dolars in interest costs and grow the state's economy by hundreds of millions of dollars. Link to the study report. Disclosure: The Econintersect Managing Editor was a paid intern at the Valley News when in high school.

This composite is a resources-heavy index, with more than 80 percent of the holdings in the energy and materials sector.
