Think Tank: Krugman on crises, Obama's Afghanistan policy and the 'best of' the Urban Institute

1) The Urban Institute counts down its 10 best-read papers of 2009. Odds are you missed something on this list that's well worth reading.

2) Paul Krugman lectures on the causes of financial crises, and the difficulties economists have had studying them.

3) Rory Stewart is impressed by President Obama's Afghanistan strategy.

4) Ever wonder what it would mean for the earth's temperature to rise 1.5 degrees Celsius, or 3 degrees Celsius, or even 5? The Guardian puts it in terms we can all understand, and should probably fear.

5) The Center for Budget and Policy Priorities offers some real talk on the excise tax.

Ezra,

The CBPP paper you linked to is about the estate tax, not the excise tax.

Apologies for posting that three times; the computer froze and I didn't see it had already posted my comment.
