Weekly Must-Reads: March 7

A list of the essential articles I posted to Twitter from February 21– March 6, 2010.  This week’s topics include: Nonprofit Strategy & Governance; Social Media; Israel Finance & Economy; Global Finance & Economy; & Potpourri.

Sorry for the (relatively) long hiatus.  Between the holiday of Purim and a cold that knocked me out last week (and still lingers), I’ve been of the grid.  Good to be back.
