No posts this week, but what I read:

UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change says lag in confronting climate change woes will be costly. “There has been a failure of government to address these solutions. If there is an alliance of companies that can bite off pieces of the puzzle, it might help.”

Why do so many of the emerging megacities in Africa, Asia, and Latin America remain so poor?

A Senate report finds that the September 2012 attack on the Benghazi consulate could have been prevented.

China’s near seas challenge.

Michael J. Mazarr sees the last two decades’ obsession with failed or weak states as a solution to the unusual concern of “what to do with a surplus of national power.”

As always, more linkage from early in the week at Political Violence @ a Glance.

Soap Kills – Leh Zaalen (Remix).
