On this week's episode of Slate Money, Felix Salmon of Fusion, Cathy O'Neil of Mathbabe.org, and Slate's Jordan Weissmann discuss Amazon's (NASDAQ:AMZN) new smartphone: Will people pay for the privilege of easier shopping? They argue over how climate change and impending civil war in Iraq will (or won't) affect the oil market. And they explain the implications of the Supreme Court's decision about what Argentina still owes hedge funds, 13 years after default.
