What I read this week:

Owen Barder and Vijaya Ramachandran ask for more effective aid for the Philippines in the aftermath of the devastating typhoon than the aid for post-earthquake Haiti, suggesting measures to increase the transparency and accountability of aid spending (via Stephen P. Groff).

Micah Zenko decries the Pentagon’s budgetary lobbying.

Reuters has a long investigative piece detailing Ayatollah Khamenei’s economic holdings. In Foreign Affairs Akbar Ganji suggests that the Revolutionary Guard Corp will not attempt to upset a potential warming of Iranian relations with the West.

As always, earlier this week I collected more news and analysis on political violence at Political Violence @ a Glance.

Kaki King – Cargo Cult.
