Michael Strain, a resident scholar at the right-leaning American Enterprise Institute, occupies an interesting place in today's discussion.

European Union foreign ministers on Monday moved toward imposing more sanctions on Russia over its role in the breakaway of Ukraine's Crimea region, setting up a target list of people linked to the secession of the peninsula.
CHARLOTTE, N. C. (TheStreet) -- US Airways' biggest union said it wants to be able to strike because its members are paid less than American workers who do the same jobs, despite the two carriers' merger on Dec. 9.
The airline has said it wants to wait until mechanics and fleet service workers at US Airways and American have a joint contract before the work groups have the same wages and benefits.
LONDON (The Deal) -- European markets -- including Russia's -- recovered their poise in morning trading on Monday, as the fear that Crimea would vote to secede from Ukraine and join Russia became a certainty. Moscow's Micex Composite, which had a bad week last week, was up 1.43%. Paris, Bonn and London managed more modest rises.
NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- The Ides of March have brought additional volatility in the form of increasing price fluctuations in many of the major indices we track. Despite briefly hitting a new high in the SPDR S&P 500 ETF this month, we have seen an increase in fear brought on by slowing growth data in China and political uncertainty in Ukraine.
This fear has put a bid under safe haven assets such as gold, Treasuries, and even VIX futures.
