The editor of The Economist John Mickelthwait spoke at Stanford and here are my notes:
Sitting in bed 1913 ordering tea, John Maynard Keynes.
Compare number of people who have moved from rural to city in China since 1998 to the number of people who traveled from Europe to U.S.
China is brittle.
The Stanford Daily had a coverage that seemed consistent with mine and noticibly better. Meanwhile I am occassionally confering with my former high school basketball teammate Brian K. Evans, who now teaches economics at Foothill College. I told him I had bought Stiglitz and he suggested that I read people I am not pre-sold on.
I remember Fuchs and Arrow as names associated with our basketball team. Ken Fuchs was a senior when I was a freshman. Andy “Spud” Arrow was a manager of the team, the year behind me. John Taylor, years later, handed out flyers for my shows, at Gunn and managed a local rock band of his classmates, I booked, called Wikkit. I read somewhere that Amaryya Sen has a son in the music biz, a dj.
Edit to add, October 20, 2011: I am taking a microeconomics course at Foothill College with instructor Brian Evans. He recommends using a web site maintained by a professor Reff. I have a quiz tomorrow which will consist of drawing a lot of diagrams of supply and demand, as they are affected by various other inputs.
