Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Fixing A Hole: How the Tax Code for Executive Pay Distorts Economic Incentives and Burdens Taxpayers (Roosevelt Institute)

Roosevelt Institute Director of Research Susan Holmberg and Roosevelt Institute | Campus Network Senior Fellow in Economic Development Lydia Austin analyze the ways the performance pay loophole harms taxpayers, companies, and the economy.

If Dodd-Frank Doesn’t Work, Here are Four Things That Could (WaPo)

Roosevelt Institute Fellow Mike Konczal outlines some ideas that were rejected during the debates over Dodd-Frank. He suggests that if aspects of Dodd-Frank aren't working, we should remember these proposals, which favored strong lines over regulatory micromanagement.

Coming Home for the Recession (TAP)

Roosevelt Institute | Pipeline Fellow Nona Willis Aronowitz continues her series on Millennials and the new economy, this time focusing on young women of color for whom the recession has enforced traditional living patterns, because living with family is cheaper.

Detroit, and the Bankruptcy of America’s Social Contract (Robert Reich)

Robert Reich suggests that Detroit's bankruptcy is an indication of the problems that come from increased class segregation. By fleeing to the suburbs, Detroit's middle and upper classes untied themselves from the needs of the city.

In Climbing Income Ladder, Location Matters (NYT)

David Leonhardt reports on a new study that looks at income mobility across regional lines. One of the most interesting findings is that mixed income neighborhoods, where many classes live together, are a strong indication of better income mobility for children.

Deception in Counting the Unemployed (The Atlantic)

Steve Clemons looks at the work of Leo Hindery, Jr., a former CEO who has fought for better deals for workers for many years. Hindery's focus is on "real unemployment," and he claims the government's use of the U-3 numbers obscures the facts facing workers.

Mapping the Sequester's Impact on Low-Income Housing (The Nation)

Greg Kaufmann discusses the ways that sequestration is affecting the people who rely on Section 8 housing vouchers. He maps out story after story of cuts that the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities says will lead to a rise in homelessness.

A Shuffle of Aluminum, but to Banks, Pure Gold (NYT)

David Kocieniewski explains how banks have started buying physical commodity trading assets, like aluminum, to gain market intelligence for that commodity. This translates to miniscule increases in the cost of products, and billions in profits to the banks.
