Three Interesting Pieces in the New York Times
Here they are:
- Heather Timmons, "Vogue's Fashion Photos Spark Debate in India," New York Times, Aug. 31, 2008 (story on photos of unidentified poor people modeling very expensive clothing items) [incidentally, the World Bank's own Voices of the Poor from 2000 also did not include names of the people they were giving voice to].
- Dalton Conley, "Rich Man's Burden," New York Times, Sep. 2, 2008 (starts of sort of whiny about work that does not permit completely down time -- something professors should know about -- but ends with an interesting discussion of inequality).
- Alan S. Blinder, "Is History Siding with Obama's Economic Plan?" New York Times, Aug. 30, 2008 (the author thinks the answer is yes).
