The G7 has just published the Cornwall Consensus & Recommendations of the G7 Panel on Economic Resilience. I had the opportunity to serve as a "Guest member" of the panel (i.e. can listen in, ask questions & comment but not vote) 1/n…
The G7 Cornwall Consensus is an important document that should be read very carefully by anyone interested in geo-strategic and global economic evolution. Behind all the diplomatic language is the new long-term consensus of the advanced economies 2/n…
The future evolution of global supply chains, and many other things, will be influenced by this. We have already seen the proposal for a "global minimum tax". Whether or not one agrees with it, the architecture of the post-Covid world is being put in place. Pay attention. 3/n

A very interesting article on implications of the airborne nature of #COVID19. Ensuring ventilation in enclosed spaces may matter more than any other measure we are taking. 1/n…
This is why adding UV filters (incidentally very cheap) to central A/c systems and discouraging enclosed space congregation is important. May explain why Covid spiked in winter in cold countries and in summer here, and shows no seasonality on the equator (Brazil). 2/n
More research needed but this has important implications for what activities can be opened up quickly and what cannot. Also, how the high risk activities need to be redesigned. A/c of metro systems should be the single biggest focus in cities. 3/n

I am glad that Africa too is waking up to its systematic depiction as a place that needs to be "saved" by the West through some overt/covert colonization. Always remember that the East India Company's brutalities in India was justified by "left-liberals" from JS Mill to Marx
Always be suspicious of Tarzans & Janes (or Phantoms) offering to protect you. They basically want to treat you as animals without agency..... and will extract a very high price by keeping you dependent
Since many people are tweeting about how Marx shed tears for colonial India. Well, he thought the colonial destruction of Indian civilization was a good thing as it paved the way for his "revolution"

Early 20th century Bengalis were strongly inspired by Shivaji's resistance to foreign rule. Aurobindo ends an imaginary conversation between Shivaji & Jai Singh thus:

"I undermined an empire and it has not been rebuilt. I created a nation and it has not yet perished."

Rabindranath Tagore too wrote a poem celebrating Chhatrapati #Shivaji 's resistance to the Mughals.

The first stanza of the poem reads thus:
Similarly Swami Vivekananda was a great admirer of Shivaji and considered him among greatest kings of India. 3/n

Even as we roll out the vaccines worldwide, Covid19 is putting up a tough rearguard. Everyone knows about dire situation in US, but second wave in Canada is killing 167/day & death rate is still rising (population adjusted, that is equivalent to 6k+ deaths/day for India). 1/n
Several SE Asian countries had so far managed to keep the pandemic under control, but Indonesia & Malaysia have seen very big jumps in recent weeks (although still not in European levels of infection) 2/n
The most unexpected is the sharp increase in UAE where vaccination is progressing well. With 3.6k new cases/day, it is Asia's hotspot on per capita basis (India equivalent would be 4.9 lakh/day). 3/n

Dear @yonex please look at the quality of you AS 2 shuttles. I ran through 6 in one hour. If they cannot stand a smash from a middle aged economist, what happens when a pro hits it? Below is after just 3 rallies 1/n
One tube of imported Yonex shuttles costs 2k and will not last 2 hours of play. The Decathklon FSC390 is not as smooth but lasts longer and half the price. Cannot find any high end locally made ones 2/n
Incidentally, the Decathlon ones are also made in China. Wonder what happened to good quality ones from Ludhiana? I found only very poor quality ones in Delhi shops 3/n
