Crooked Timber notes from the FT

First, go read Henry on the lambasting of, especially, Turkey by U.S. idiots. Apparently, any U.N. vote is wholly the responsibility of everyone except the people who presented the resolution.

Note also that the editorial page has a much more interesting piece on economics than all those Zogby myths. Maybe more about that later, but for now, let’s pull the appropriate (in more ways than one) quote:

In reality, conflicts of interest abound – between buyers and sellers, short and long terms, equity and debt, taxpayers and shareholders. Context is all-important – the idiosyncrasies of age, financial circumstances and geography. How do we provide a “neutral” framework for such crooked timber?
