Weekly Links – The Future of Iran Edition

by Darwin on June 21, 2009

iran-protest-picturesAnother week of great reads.  These are entries from blogs I frequent, and I hope you will too (just come back!).  I’ve also included various finance/investing carnivals that published my material this week as well as my posts within my network since the last weekly links.  This week, Iran’s historic election and subsequent outrage from a population seeking change is the prominent news item.  Not only does the outcome of the current movement have implications for the balance of the entire region, but there are financial implications as well; namely energy prices. Here’s a culmination of several shocking videos from Iran demonstrating the bravery and determination of a generation that has said no to propaganda, censorship and brutal military force at demonstrations.
