Charlie has the morning off.

"The Morning Briefing" is SmartPlanet's daily roundup of must-reads from the web. This morning we're reading about economic successes and failures.

1.) The backlash to the backlash? Detroit home prices are poised for a surge as automotive companies recuperate.

2.) Newark mayor Cory Booker explores his next act after his successful term as America's "inspiration architect."

3.) Frustration and disappointment in Maputo as Mozambique fails to shake free its colonial past.

4.) Need a creative recharge? Don't take a vacation; take on a completely different project.

5.) Economic issues aside, the European Union continues to struggle in standardizing policy toward the peripatetic Roma people.
