Morning Must Reads: Bribery, Inequality Explained, $30K Preschools and Balancing Paid and Unpaid Work

The New York Times on Sunday published a lengthy article detailing allegations that Wal-Mart executives allegedly violated a federal law that makes it a crime for American corporations and their subsidiaries to bribe foreign officials.

This morning, the Times' Thomas Edsall does an excellent job explaining what three sources show and don't show about increasing income inequality in America.

Did somebody mention inequality? Robert Frank discusses preschools that are harder to get into than Harvard.

Finally, this morning the always insightful Nancy Folbre brings some clarity and good sense to the recent dust up over paid and unpaid work.
