Anything but water

  1. How to do development aid right (give directly) and wrong (pay for bureaucrats)

  2. I enjoyed this econtalk on makers, and their point on web innovation (a move from parallel reinventing the wheel to adding onto each others' shoulders) is important. Academics need to do the same (e.g., blogs or wikis) instead of duplicating and failing to reconcile their ideas in too many journals.

  3. Does "culture" keep predatory individuals and governments in check? Seems to be yes.

  4. A great infographic on climate change and fossil fuel use.

  5. Ronald Coase (and partners) are trying to make economics more realistic (useful). Hear hear!
