Bits and Pieces - June 19, 2012

On the confusion of economics with morality.

Now that the US is pumping lots of natural gas and petroleum, is energy independence within reach? No.

Foreign Policy magazine published yet another of its listicles, this time the "Twitterati 100." (I am not a fan of listicles.) It seems - ho hum, big surprise - that most of FP's Twitterati are, you guessed it, men.

What look to me like the best summary and analysis of the Iran negotiations. It's early days yet; there will be more.
