Economics and beyond

  • Some believe that Glenn Hubbard didn't take it so well when Ben Bernanke was chosen Fed Chairman. Among them, the Columbia Business School students are by far the most creative...
  • An excellent economics viewpoint of Gary Becker on legalizing polygamy. Although Richard Posner succesfully questions some of Becker's arguments, the main line in Professor Becker's comment remains untouched. Chapeau!
  • A very interesting (and with a great pedagogical potential) data analysis software developed by the team of Hans Rosling from the Karolinska Institute in Sweden. See also a video presentation by Prof. Rosling here.
