Weekend Reading

April 10th, 2010 · 1 Comment

This week’s links:

  • Startups, not Bailouts: by Thomas Friedman (NYT). “Good-paying jobs don’t come from bailouts. They come from start-ups. And where do start-ups come from? They come from smart, creative, inspired risk-takers.”
  • Four ways to get more value from digital marketing: from McKinsey Quarterly. “Companies that make the deep strategic, organizational, and operational shifts required to become effective digital marketers can become more agile, more productive, and accelerate revenue growth.”
  • The Unbearably Sad Reality of India: by Atanu Dey. “Those who made India poor did not just condemn hundreds of millions of Indians to lives of extreme deprivation and premature deaths, but they also weakened India externally and internally.”
  • Analyzing Financial Statements: by Fred Wilson. “I am most comfortable when the monthly operating income (or losses) of a business are roughly equal to its cash flow (or cash burn). This does not have to be the case for the business to be healthy but it means the business has a relatively simple economic architecture, which is always comforting.”
  • Why the time for Mobile is Now: by David Hornik. “Given the power of the devices, the simplicity of developing for them, and the proliferation of amazing applications, it is not surprising that the mobile revolution is finally upon us.”

    Atanu’s article is interesting.

    Though I am disappointed at the way he has reacted to one of the comments by Sonia.

    Also, it would be interesting to note what is the way forward. We know the problem(s) and the past.

    My very limited mindset says (taking off on Atanu’s comment on rich countries and happiness equated to money) is that entrepreneurs create wealth. So to start with, let us create more entrepreneurs.
