1) For economists find evidence of a direct connection between civilian casualties at the hands of American forces and insurgent recruitment in Afghanistan.
2) An Urban Institute report suggests that being born poor means, for most people, staying poor.
3) Developed nations and developing nations do not compete in high-tech exports as much as people think.
4) Pew finds that about 55 percent of Americans have lost a job or seen a reduction in pay or hours during this recession.
5) CUNY economist Ryan Edwards found that one-third to one-half of the total cost of a war comes after the fighting has stopped. The main drivers here are medical and veteran's benefits.
