Top-eds will be a recurring feature in which I highlight some of the better opinion pieces and editorials for the day/week. Hence, "Top-eds." Get it? Oh, shut up.

The Trade Collapse - Richard Rahn, Washington Times

-READ THIS OP-ED! A pithy summary can't do it justice. Just read it.

Global Trade Collaspse is Over, But No Recovery in Sight - The Economist

-A good recap of how global trade has stopped its freefall, but that a rebound could depend on new demand in, you guessed it, China (and Germany too).

Corruption and Big Government Go Together - William McGurn, WSJ

-Using New Jersey as his foil, McGurn provides an excellent account of why Big Government - and it intrusion into every aspect of our personal and professional lives - breeds corruption.

A Post-Racial President? - Thomas Sowell, RealClearPolitics

-Scathing critique of Obama's "post-racialism" and classic Sowell.

Resisting Green Tariffs - The Wall Street Journal

-The WSJ editors provide a nice summary of the global revolt against carbon tariffs (as I noted here).

Obama's Tactical Mistake - Jay Cost, RealClearPolitics

-Fantastic, unbiased analysis of how Dem committee chairs have shifted dramatically left over the last 40 years, and how that shift has undermined Obama's policy goals.
