This week, we've got climate change, agriculture, and a Vanity Fair article that's good enough to shoulder into the space I usually reserve for research reports. And it doesn't even have graphs.
1) Confused by auctions and offsets and "upstream" regulation? Then check out the Sightline Foundation's Cap-and-Trade 101.
2) Emmanuel Saez and Thomas Piketty guide you through the evolution of top incomes.
3) Not a think tank release, but Michael Lewis's investigation into what really happened at AIG, and thus in our financial system, is really worth a read.
4) The Congressional Research Service analyzes the role of the U.S. agricultural sector in climate change.
5) It's not getting much attention amidst the more colorful controversies of health-care reform, but the expansion of Medicaid will arguably be the single most important policy change for the uninsured.
