Summer Reading

Some books we need to finish up over the summer:

Daniel Esty’s Green to Gold

Do some research on this guy! His ideas are eerily close to my own and will prove to be a valuable resource for anyone interested in Corporate Economics and Environmental policy.

Bill Easterly’s The White Man’s Burden

Paul Collier’s The Bottom Billion

If you have $60 sitting around this might be the best purchase of the summer. All three of these books provide ridiculously detailed insight into the world of developmental economics and while I don’t always agree with some of these authors’ points every page is worth reading.

P.S. Sorry about the lack of posts in the last few weeks. I’ve been on vacation in the Cape and will be returning next Sunday.

Update: I’ll be opening another blog on Blogspot: The Green Nile, which will parallel this site and soon become its new home. In the meantime continue to enjoy!
