How the French wealth tax worked. The Democrats, of course, are supposed to be the party opposed to income inequality. So what has gone wrong here? Why should these elites be trusted? If any institution should be able to buck social trends, it is Harvard. Here is the rest of my Bloomberg column , some parts in full mood affiliation mode.

The same monsoon season, by the way, led to power blackouts of up to 60 hours.

Brown Bag Seminar - Whatever happened to the blogging revolution?

On a livability index, Karachi ranks near the bottom , just ahead of Damascus, Lagos, Dhaka and Tripoli. There is no subway, and a typical street scene blends cars, auto-rickshaws, motorbikes and the occasional donkey pulling a cart. And yet to see only those negatives is to miss the point. This market test is more important than the aesthetic test, and Karachi unambiguously passes it. Most of all, I am impressed by the tenacity of Pakistan. Before going there, I was very familiar with the cliched claim that Pakistan is a fragile tinderbox, barely a proper country, liable to fall apart any moment and collapse into civil war.

Neither my visit nor my more focused reading has provided any support for that view, and perhaps it is time to retire it. It has come through the Afghan wars battered but intact. That is all from my longer than usual Bloomberg column , all about Karachi. Thomas J. More detailed than what I am looking for on this topic at pp. I read about one-third of this one. A fine book, beautifully written, but somehow too much of the material felt familiar given other accounts I had consumed. A very useful pp. The images in this book I found mind-blowing, claiming a place for Goncharova as one of the very best artists of her time and what a time for the visual arts it was.

Edward Snowden, Permanent Record. Starts slow, but an interesting read no matter what you think of him, most of all of how one can step by step be led to actions one did not originally intend. I thought his own case for what he did was weaker than I had been expecting. Nonetheless, I read through to the end eagerly.

My Life In The Blogosphere

Markets in everything: the anti-Krugman cruise. Blogging lets people write and publish without a Western filter. Q: [ethanz] In your book, you look at how the rest of the world gets filtered by the Western media. You say that the blogosphere lets people see the world unfiltered. A: The bloggers I met with have very popular sites within their own country.

Greta Thunberg's Digital Rise Calls Back to a Pre-Digital Era

Part of my job as a journalist is to talk with other journalists and tell them they ought to be paying more attention to these voices. During the Olympics, over Tibet, bloggers on both sides were shouting across each other.

  • For one thing, language is a key problem. On the positive side, newspapers ran what Arab bloggers thought about the election.

    A: We need both. You, Ethan, may be underestimating the effect bloggers are having on journalists. Q: [me] Do you have examples of blogging affecting repression? A: Egypt. Bloggers filmed torture and rape. It was distributed via mobiles. Eventually the government was forced to respond. Police torture still goes on, but now people talk about it.

    Q: The effect of Al Jazeera?

    A: Major. Satellite is having more effect in many ways than the Net. It reaches more people. What is a positive message we can get out about working the system to get them to report on the real cases happening on the ground? A: The Western media sense is that the Israelis are good and the Arabs are bad. In Saudi Arabia the SaudiJeans blogger says that the state rarely imprisons bloggers or tortured journalists, preferring instead to simply ban them. Almost half of bloggers here are women, but Loewenstein is unable to meet with any due to the almost segregated society. Recently there have been signs that this is changing.

    Some island bloggers are forced to dress as tourists, feign accents and covertly enter hotels to get online. According to a study by Middlebury College, blogs in China are far more likely to carry criticism than Chinese newspapers , with successes including exposing the assault of street sellers by local police a story local TV journalists had refused to cover. Censorship is well covered throughout the book — key here are Western companies including Cisco, Microsoft, Google and Yahoo!

    This is a worthy, complicated book that reveals a richer understanding of other lives in other countries.

    Antony Loewenstein talks about The Blogging Revolution

    The hope expressed here is that the voices now being heard on the blogosphere will help spread that understanding across borders. I thought it was a really interesting read, although it has more to do with the ideal of blogging rather than the reality. At the end of the book I was none the wiser as to the extent to which the bloggers interviewed were representative of the bloggers in the countries generally, or the effectiveness of their blogs as way of sharing ideas….

    Yes, it was more of an insight into the countries than the blogosphere, but no less interesting for that. As you say, that would have been useful too.
