7 Monday Reads - The Best of Politics, Economics, & Ideas

A list of seven articles I read late last night and early this morning. 

  • China's military budget tops U.S.$100 billion. (BBC & Times of IndiaThe above picture is sourced from the BBC. 
  • Google's new privacy policy: Five ways to protect yourself. (TIME)
  • Russian strongman Vladimir Putin wins presidential election. (Guardian). Also read this interesting piece on how 'rigging' is a delicate art. (Guardian)
  • The PM of India has alleged that certain Christian NGOs are receiving funds from abroad to fund their anti-nuclear protests, like in the case of the Koodankulam nuke energy plant. The Economic Times has an interesting debate on whether funds to NGOs should be regulated.
