New Leaders, U.S. Bound by Their Interest

Henri J. Barkey, professor of international relations at Lehigh University, was quoted in an article on the recent squabbling over the selection of new Iraqi leaders. "In a way, the more fighting, the better it is for the new government, and ultimately, the better it is for us," said Henri J. Barkey, a Middle East specialist at Lehigh University in Pennsylvania and a former State Department official. "It is important we lose some arguments." The messy process of naming a caretaker government for Iraq didn't give Washington its top choices for new leaders Tuesday. But the interim regime is one that Washington probably will be able to work with. American officials said they preferred a different president and were reluctant to give members of the U.S.-picked Iraqi Governing Council prominent roles in the interim government, fearing that doing so could undermine the new body's legitimacy, those interviewed for the article said.

Soaring Price of Materials Costing Area Projects, Jobs

Skyrocketing building costs are causing an industry-wide crisis and are putting hundreds of jobs in jeopardy. China's booming economy has caused much growth – at the same time that the United States' economy is rebounding. Booming economies and more building have caused steel prices to go up, said Mary Beth Deily, associate professor of economics at Lehigh University. "Economic growth will increase the demand for steel, and thus steel prices," Deily said. "This is good news for the U.S. steel industry, since they have been experiencing low prices for some time. Now they can raise prices more easily because more of world steel production is being sold in China rather than in the U.S."
