A weekly feature, linking seven trashes collected by the senses and dumped on to the brain. Some of these may end up being a post someday.
Bangladesh and Pakistan: Flirting with Failure in South Asia — William B Milam
A man in full — Tom Wolfe
– Amartya Sen on the quality of life in India and China. Interesting reference about Bangladesh too. Definitely worthy of further writing. Also, mental note — how does lifetime utility of the representative Indian and Chinese compare under a standard neoclassical utility function?
– Roula Khalaf on difference between the regular army and elite units loyal to the regime when it comes to suppressing popular uprising. Hmmm… perhaps it’s time recreate the Rakkhi Bahini?
