So-called Nobel Economics Prize for 2019 awarded to Abhijit Banerjee, Esther Duflo and Michael Kremer for studies on poverty as part of Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab.
Much Married Banerjee had a love child with Esther. He was also her supervisor. Banerjee is JNU alumni.
Amartya Sen got Nobel Economics Prize after marrying Emma Georgina Rothschild. Now Abhijit Banerjee get one after marrying his former doctoral student Esther Duflo.
BTW, Amartya Sen was their matchmaker.
Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab (JPAL) is a very shady outfit that works with notorious organizations like Ford Foundation and terrorist-linked Saudi Abdul Latif Jameel family that had a role in supplying Toyota cars to ISIS.

🇮🇳 #Inde : investi aujourd'hui pour son deuxième mandat, @narendramodi souhaite mettre en place des réformes économiques et sociales qui feraient de lui le Reagan indien.…
🇮🇳 Cette focalisation sur les enjeux économiques et sociaux aux dépends des enjeux identitaires, si elle se confirme dans les mois à venir, pourrait créer des tensions au sein de la vaste famille des nationalistes hindous, le #SanghParivar. A suivre donc.
🇮🇳 Le nouveau cabinet de @narendramodi compte 58 membres. L'entrée la plus importante est celle de l'ancien dirigeant du @BJP4India @AmitShah au poste de ministre de l'Intérieur. Cet organisateur de génie a largement contribué aux victoires de #Modi.…

Thread on some #KeyTakeaways from #LokSabhaElections2019 results:
1. There was always a #Modi wave but the #LeLi Commentariat insisted it was an undercurrent against Modi and #BJP.
2. Losses in Rajasthan, MP and Chhattisgarh in 2018 were an aberration and not a trend. 1/n
3. Vote transfers do not happen between historically hostile parties. Anticipated vote transfer did not happen in #UP. SP-BSP #MahaGathBandhan was nonstarter.
4. Never mind the bunk peddled by pop political analysts. #India would prefers Government with single-party majority. 2/n
5. Mamata Banerjee underestimated Hindu backlash to her brazen Muslim appeasement and pandering to illegal Bangladeshi immigrants.
6. She overestimated the ability of party goons to strike fear among voters. It took 34 years for LF to unravel; TMC less than 10 years. 3/n

Know an army of 2004 fans out there. They are hoping for a resurrection like 2004. Tough life being a faithful.

2004 was easy picking. 2019 seems to be a Royal pickling.
2004 had no counter narratives from the people. It was fought between politicians. 1/5 #Elections2019
Social media did not exist. No counter narratives. BJP ran history’s most boastful campaign. Two men, Advani&Mahajan thought they had won before it began. And, most importantly, media like NDTV were puppies. To them, PM was Pramod Mahajan. Barkha & Rajdeep were at PM’s feet. 2/5
The congress fought with its back to the wall. It was a spirited battle. The leader knew her weaknesses. She underplayed herself. Her political Hand was placed on he people’s conscience. She did not indulge in hyperbole. Spoke from a script with facts. Think of Rahul now. 3/5

व्हेनेझुएला,लोकसंख्या हा गंभीर प्रश्न नसलेला देश.
उपजाऊ जमीन,भरपूर पाऊस,शेकडो नद्या हजारो मैलांचा समुद्र किनारा.
सऊदी अरेबियापेक्षा मोठी,जगात सर्वात मोठी क्रूड ऑइल आरक्षित आहे.
तरीही आज हा देशामध्ये अन्नाचा भयंकर तुटडवा,प्रचंड महागाई,डबघाईला आला आहे.

असे का झाल?


२० वर्षांपूर्वी व्हेनेझुएला एक विकसित व समृद्ध राष्ट्र होते.
पण आज भारतीय रुपयाच्या बदल्यात ३६०० व्हेनेझुएला बोलिव्हर्स मिळतील,परिस्थिती इतकी वाईट आहे की बर्याच महिला केवळ जेवणासाठी वाममार्गाचा पर्याय निवडतात.
शहरात कुठेही लुटालुट होते.

काय चुकल या देशाचे-नेत्यांचे?


दुसऱ्या महायुद्धात जगात तेलाला प्रचंड मागणी होती मग किंमती ही वाढल्या.
राजकारण,चुकीचे धोरण,अमाप पैसा यामुळे देशाने नागरिकांना मोफत अन्नधान्य, फळे, भाज्या, औषधे, यंत्रसामग्री आणि वस्त्रे व सेवा देण्यास सुरवात केली.

त्यामुळे कष्ट करण्याची इच्छाच मेली,देश परावलंबी झाला.

Thread on #NYAY Things to mull over: Proposal is to fill income gap of individual households up to Rs 72,000 per annum and NOT give each 'poor family' Rs 72,000 per annum
2. So the total outlay will be much below a simple maths of Rs 72,000 x 5crore households.
3. The only income survey i know of is SECC. That only asks which household has highest earner earning below Rs 5,000 per moth
