The Weekend Desk Report

The Weekend Desk: Now banned in Maastricht.

Economists this week struggled to interpret Herman Cain's 9-9-9 plan after the candidate's surprise win in Florida. Most agree the proposal is a cut above some of Cain's rejected policies, including:

Myitsone is Youritsone
The nominally-thawed authoritarian leadership in Myanmar has surprisingly reversed it decision on the controversial Myitsone Dam project. Meaning there might be hope in other nominally-thawed autocracies.

Medvedev is Youdvedev
Of course, we all know most electorates like their nominally-thawed autocracies better.

Finally this week, it turns out talking and posturing haven't helped resolve the Israeli-Palestinian crisis. Maybe they could Tweet it out.


The Weekend Desk Tip Line: Thaw out.
