Assorted Links

I realised today morning that blogger has been banned in the office. Hence have shifted to wordpress which is quite decent but I liked blogger better.

It was a nice weekend. Alumni meeting on Saturday and a wedding on Sunday. Hence could not read much but here are some good links I read today morning:

1. A debate on effects of trade: There is a ferocious debate on the bolgosphere by some prominent economists on the effects of trade on the economy. It was started by Dani Rodrik and since then has been commented by economists including Mankiw, Krugman etc. Read about a summary of the debate here and here I would post my commnets on the same after understanding the whole idea.

2. More On Hedge Funds Fees

3. In US, Institutional Investors are now looking incrasingly at public infrastructure. An interesting story here

4. Have Chinese Scholars been bought?

5. Gender bias in Tariffs?

Update: Read this stirring speech by Mani Shankar Aiyar. We all know it is true but for it to come from a Cabinet Minister tells me that all is not lost in our country and we have some hope left.
