  • In a bombshell FT op-ed, World Bank Chief Robert Zoellick hints at a return to a new gold standard as a solution to the currency war.
  • In the Irish Times, economist Morgan Kelly lays out a very long argument that the Irish Republic will run out of money in early 2010. The article seems to be affecting markets this morning, as Irish yields blow out further.
  • In a WSJ op-ed, Fed governor Kevin Warsh explains his opposition to existing Fed policy.
