1. No wonder France is deporting the Roma. How could a country of 60 million people possibly cope with 15,000 Roma migrants?

Interesting article in the New York Times on how the Roma are testing the EU’s open borders policy.

2. Vince Cable says the UK government’s immigration cap is costing jobs and harming the fragile recovery. His honesty is welcome, but now it’s time to do something about it. Otherwise, what’s the point of being in government?

3. The Guardian claims the coalition is to review right-to-buy policy for council homes. Sounds like pre-LibDem conference spin to me.

4. Indonesia defaulted on its debts just over a decade ago yet it can borrow more cheaply than Spain. An emerging market bubble?

5.  Why emerging economies should follow Taiwan’s example and use capital controls to stem hot money flows
