Tuesday Assorted Links

1. It’s the Current Year, So Why Does America’s Cold War Cartel Still Exist? Murray’s getting better at this.

2. U.S. seeks to avoid defeating ISIS*.

3. Iraqi government paid salaries in Mosul for a year.

4. In short, it’s not Erdoğan who is insulted by this comparison—it’s Gollum.

5. Fewer trade frictions lead to more Great Moderation-like outcomes.

*The broader IS is  on the Mediterranean, too.
