The Short List

  • Karzai looks to Russia to help revive some projects in Afghanistan that were originally started during the Soviet occupation.

  • Iran, the U.S., and other have gone into another round of talks regarding Iran's nuclear program, but expectations are low.

  • Google shakes up its management team in an effort to get back to that start-up mentality, despite being worth $200 billion and having over 24,000 employees.

  • The Republican Study Committee is proposing $100 billion in cuts to non-defense discretionary spending.  This would reduce most federal agency budgets by 30%.  The plan also calls for the elimination of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, the National Endowment for the Arts, Amtrak, and USAID.

  • The Economist considers income inequality.
